Mount Airy donation leaves residents puzzled

From North Carolina- (with video)

A mystery in Mount Airy has a local thrift shop searching for a good Samaritan.

It centers on a donation that has the recipients thinking the gift was a little larger than intended.

It all started a few days ago, when volunteers at the St. James Episcopal Church Thrift Shop found a large amount of cash in a clothing donation that had just been dropped off.

A gift? Maybe. But parishioner Lynda Ellis says she felt it wasn’t intended.

Now the church is trying to track down the donor to make sure it was a gift and not a mistake.

“They may say no we really meant to donate that to you and that would be wonderful for our thrift shop and for our community but we really want to find that person and at least be able to thank them,” Ellis says.
