A resale shop worker in Valparaiso, Indiana, is being praised after she recently found $7,000 in a coat pocket and helped return it to the rightful owner.

According to WLS-TV, Plato’s Closet employee Jennifer Kimes says she found the massive wad of cash while doing a routine examination of the jacket.

Kimes then immediately put the money in a safe spot in the register and called the store’s owner Tammy Wendland, who reached out to the person who donated the coat and returned the money to him.

Wendland says the man was “extremely grateful” to have the money returned.
