SARASOTA, FL (NBC) – A Florida thrift store employee found a little more than clothing in a donation box.

Employee Mimi Williams says she was sorting through a donation from the company’s white glove service and when she got to one of her last boxes, she says she found more than 12-thousand dollars at the bottom of the box.

Williams said,”Got to the third one and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, Xavier!!! Look what I found.”

She immediately notified her manager about the discovery.

Her manager says Mimi is a model employee for how she handled the discovery.

A spokesperson for Goodwill says the money was traced back to a law firm of a deceased client and given to relatives.
