Homeless Man Gets Life-Changing Reward For Returning $10,000 Check
The Thanksgiving season is full of feel-good stories of people putting their fellow man before themselves.
According to NBCConnecticut, a homeless man’s sense of duty and a lucky business owner’s sense of gratitude have created one of those heart-warming holiday moments.
Elmer Alvarez found a check for $10,000 on the streets of New Haven and immediately took it back to it’s rightful owner.
“What I did, finding that check and returning it, I would do it all over again,” he said.
A realtor named Roberta Hoskie had dropped in on the street. She was so happy to have it back, that she went the extra mile to help Elmer after discovering that he was homeless.
Hoskie said she was once homeless herself and she’s paying it forward. She’s giving Alvarez a scholarship to real estate school, career counseling and a job interview.
“In this packet, I have full ride services and training for you to learn English as a second language,” Hoskie said.
However, Roberta wasn’t done there…
“This winter you don’t have to worry about being in cold,” Hoskie said. “We have housing for you.”
WHERE DID ALL THESE CHOPPED ONIONS COME FROM?!!??!?!!?!
