James Grandy, a woman brought in several clothing items for donation at the store, located at 574 Main St., on Oct. 26 between 10 and 11 a.m. The woman was dropping the donation of clothing items off on behalf of an elderly widow when “something of great value was discovered inside the donated items.”
“On behalf of an elderly widow, the woman brought in several clothing items for donation. Amongst other items, there were bags of clothing containing new dress shirts, folded and still in their plastic,” states the release. “Something of great value was discovered inside the donated items.
