Texas woman finds $17K in donated coat

A woman who works at a Dallas non-profit made quite a discovery.

She found four envelopes containing $17,000 in the pocket of a man's donated jacket.

She tracked down the woman who dropped it off and learned the coat belonged to her late husband.

Since his death, she's been struggling financially and had no idea the money was in the jacket.

She was so thankful that she gave the woman who tracked her down a $1,000 reward.
