Richardson, Texas - A needy, 78-year-old widow in Richardson, gathered her husband's clothing and donated it to a local thrift shop run by Jewish Family Services but she apparently did not check the pockets of an old pea coat.  But, a worker in the resale shop did and found four envelopes containing a total of $17,050 says the Association of Mature American Citizens. 

The store tracked down the woman who donated the clothing and returned the money.  She declined to be identified, but the widow said the cash would go a long way toward resolving financial problems she's been having since her husband's death.
