SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Someone donated some serious green to a children's charity in Springfield, Missouri – but it wasn't money.
Officials shared the news in the nonprofit's bulletin this month.
"That's the most expensive thing ever put in the bin, and we weren't able to use it to help the charity," Tyler Moles, president of the organization's Think Big Foundation, told the News-Leader.
An employee reported the discovery to Springfield police, who haven't arrested anyone in connection with the incident, the newspaper reported.
Moles hopes the story will spark an increase in legitimate donations of winter clothes as temperatures drop.
