As president of the region's Goodwill operations, Lewis Chartock, says such finds frequently happen. He says that some $20,000 of possibly accidental donations have surfaced over the past two years.

Goodwill's policies dictate that the donor has 30 days to come by and claim the money. If that doesn't happen, the money goes to the agency's programs.

Goodwill's staff has been reviewing video surveillance in hopes of identifying the donor.
