AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A Texas group that helps children has received a surprise $50,000 donation left under a baby Jesus figure.
Officials with The Children's Home in Amarillo found the check Wednesday after a caller advised staff to check the Nativity scene outside the building.
A receptionist discovered an envelope beneath the infant Jesus replica that contained the check.
The Children's Home provides a place for at-risk youngsters to stay.
Group President Darrin Murphy says staffers contacted the donor whose name was on the check. The man said he's inspired by the youngsters being helped by The Children's Home. The donor said he wishes to remain anonymous.
Murphy says he told some of the children about the donation and they were excited to learn that people believe in their futures.
