$20,000 of accidentally donated silver returned to rightful owners

Fortunately, the silver was still in the store and was returned to the family.

After accidentally donating it to the Habitat St. Charles ReStore, a St. Peters family was reunited with an estimated $20,000 in silver bars and coins this week.

According to a press release from Habitat for Humanity, the family made a large donation to the St. Charles ReStore after cleaning out their deceased dad's house. The kids described their dad as a bit of a "prepper", the press release said, but they had no idea what he had stashed in the home.

While dropping off the donations, one bucket was left behind because of a crack in the lid. When a family member opened the bucket, they discovered the riches inside. After finding one bucketful, they made a call to the ReStore.

Fortunately, the silver was still in the store and was returned to the family. 

The Habitat St. Charles ReStore is a store that collects donations and sells them to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. You can find more information on their website.
