Homeless Man Finds $17,000, Gives It To Food Bank

SUMNER, WASH. (CBS Local) – A homeless man in Washington state is being praised for his generosity and honesty after turning in thousands of dollars found in a bag outside a food bank.

Staff at the Sumner Community Food Bank say Kevin Booth is homeless and has been coming to the center for the last five years.

One day recently, he found a bag with $17,000 inside on the food bank’s front doorstep. But instead of keeping it, he handed it over to a food bank.

“He leaned over, picked it up, looked in it and he knew it was money,” Anita Miller, executive director of the food bank, told KCPQ. “He waited for our person who comes in at 7:30 in the morning. He waited for her, gave it to her and said, ‘Somebody left this for you.’”
