White Lake Township woman gets new car after act of kindness

A White Lake Township grandmother being applauded for turning in a bag full of thousands of dollars in cash she found last month while walking home from work now has a new car.

Dianne Gordon of White Lake Township ― who has been without a car for months, forcing her to walk to and from her job at a local grocery store ―has received an outpouring of support for her good deed. A GoFundMe campaign set up by a local police officer’s wife has raised over $78,000 as of Wednesday morning.

The Washington Post reports that some of the money has already been used to buy Gordon a new Jeep Compass that she began driving on Feb. 3.

Dianne Gordon found a bag full of thousands of dollars in cash after stopping at a BP station in White Lake Township to warm up on her way home from work.

For the last year, Gordon has had to walk roughly five miles to and from work at a local grocery store because her old car broke down and she has not had the resources to fix it.

Gordon stopped at a gas station on her way home from work to warm up on Jan. 21 when she found a bag with $14,780 worth of cash in it. Police were able to determine that the bag contained wedding gifts and returned it to the rightful owners’ family later that day, according to Lt. Matthew Ivory.
