Goodwill employee returns valuables to mourning brothers


Gilberto de la Rosa and his brother Rick donated some of their deceased mother’s belongings to Goodwill not knowing inside of them were almost $2,000 in cash and jewelry.

After Goodwill in Edinburg received the items employee Yaquelin Trevino found the valuables inside, she didn’t think twice about reporting it.

“I knew I was going to turn it in,” Trevino said. “I knew I was going to do the right thing. I wasn’t going to keep it or anything.”

Yaquelin and management were able to find a business card inside the belonging which helped them find the De la Rosa brothers. 

The brothers were very thankful, their mother passed away in January and the items found were really important for them.

“All of that really has no price to it, it’s all very valuable to us,” Gilberto said.
