ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– What would you do if you were driving down the highway and saw money raining down?
It happened to a local man who grabbed up as much of the money as he could and then found the rightful owner.
It is a story that restores your faith in humanity. The cash that was flying all over Interstate 44 was for buying food for the homeless.
Jane Corbett said she set the envelope full of cash on the back of her car as she was strapping in an 8-year-old child in a car seat.
The envelope and money took flight Monday afternoon at the Murdoch entrance ramp onto westbound I-44.
Corbett had retraced her steps and tore her house apart looking for the money.
Tuesday morning, Ray Leuthauser returned $330 he found. But about $475 was still missing. Ray told his fellow union construction workers at a job in Shrewsbury what happened and they donated more than $500 to make up the difference.
Jane with the Peter and Paul homeless center has made thank you signs for all the union workers who donated money to make up for the un-recovered cash. Ray is hoping to put those signs up at their construction site, Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in Shrewsbury.
