Outside a Dunkin’ Donuts in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a van driver spotted a purse filled with credit cards, IDs and thousands of dollars in cash. Mark Trocchio was on his way to grab a coffee when he found the bag and went inside the crowded coffee shop to see if its owner was there.
He had the woman’s ID in hand and called her name, when he spotted her, she was in the corner crying as her two teenage kids tried to console her. She was a tourist from Georgia and had $8,000 in her purse for her family’s vacation. He returned it to her and declined her reward offer, but she called the shuttle company he works for to give him credit for his good deed.
Cindy Frene of Transaction Corporate Shuttles says the grateful woman called and said “This is why I love Boston so much.” And Mark feels good knowing he saved their trip.
