What would you do if you found an envelope containing $900 in cash, along with a credit union receipt, while shopping at Target? Well, if you’re Foster Dudley, fourth grade student at Prince of Peace Catholic School (POP), you do the right thing. According to Foster’s mom, Parisa Dudley, his first response was, “Mom, can we keep it?” She told him to put himself in the shoes of the person who lost it. What if he had lost that much money? How would he feel? Foster quickly answered, “Mom, we have to find her and give it back.”
