Everyday stories are told about all the bad things that happen in this world. It isn’t often that you get to hear about a good deed. Pamela North Holloway proved there are still good people in this world. According to Huffington Post on March 6, Holloway found $7,000 and turned it in to police right away.
Holloway is a part-time parking cashier at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Holloway found $7,000 in an envelope on the curb outside the international terminal where the shuttle unloads passengers.
Holloway turned the money over to her supervisor and watched him count the money in the envelope before calling the police.
The money ended up belonging to Dr. Troy Zimbelman. He was running late for a flight he was taking with a group of friends to Costa Rica. Zimbelman realized the money was missing when he was retrieving his passport and emptying his pockets for a security checkpoint. Zimbelman was hoping he had left in his car.
When Zimbelman returned from his trip, he realized that he had not left the money in his car. He contacted the police and after describing the envelope and how the money was wrapped he was able to claim his lost money.
Dr. Troy Zimbelman was really pleased with the way the airport and the police officer had helped him to retrieve his money. Zimbelman even said he planned on sending a check to Pamela North Holloway and to the police officer who had helped him. A lot of people would have pocketed the money, but Holloway decided to do the right thing and turn it in. There are still good people in this world.
