An elderly Illinois man who accidentally donated a suit stuffed with $13,000 in bills to Goodwill appealed for the money’s return so that he can care for his cancer-stricken wife, WQAD reported.
The 80 year old decided to keep his life savings in his closet rather than in a bank because he thought the money would be safer there.
But his plan backfired when he absentmindedly donated the cash-stuffed suit — leaving him unable to pay medical bills for his wife, a Stage 4 cancer sufferer.
A Goodwill spokesperson said the agency searched its Moline store but could not find the money. It is believed the suit may have been sold already.
