“My son Caleb Stewart found $1000 in a room he was cleaning at the Doubletree By Hilton hotel in Midlothian, Va. today. He turned it in and got $20.
He is 22 yrs old and lives at home.He has worked at hotel there 2 1/2 yrs. with barely a raise. He is working full time and going to Bryant and Stratton Community College full time at night and God knows we could use the money. I (the mom) have been unemployed since July 31st and doing temp jobs. We are really behind in mortgage and bills.
No savings, no 401K, and I raised him since 4 as a single mom and he knows that character and ethics are more important than money or titles.
If someone else would have found the money they would have kept all or at least some of it. The hotel could have been sued for theft and been on the 6 o’clock news tonight!
Another proud mother moment brought to you by good morals and living right!! Thanks son for being the great person you are! …”
