Update on Former Homeless New Haven Man Who Returned 10K Check Last Year
New Haven, CT (WTIC) -- Just before Thanksgiving last year, a New Haven realtor, who lost a $10,000 check, paid a homeless man handsomely for his honesty. This Thanksgiving, the realtor and homeless man are both paying it forward. "That really shattered a lot of stereotypes that people have about homeless people," said realtor Roberta Hoskie, whose lost $10,000 check had been returned by Elmer Alvarez, a man who was homeless for more than a year.
