Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Over $12,000.00 in revenues from unclaimed property were distributed to local non-profit organizations in Mt. Juliet by Mt. Juliet Police. The unclaimed property originated from antique collectable coins, jewelry, and tools where the owner was never located. The items were sent to public auction and brought in $12,621.82. The unclaimed coin collection brought in over $11,000, which was the majority of the donated funds.
“I’m glad that we are able to turn the unclaimed property into cash for four of Mt. Juliet’s local non-profits that directly help our community,” said Police Captain Michael Mullins. “Anytime we have an opportunity to pay-it-forward to our local non-profits, we are going to do what we can.”
The Mt. Juliet Help Center, Mt. Juliet Senior Center, MCHRA Meals on Wheels & Senior Dining, and Big Brothers of Mt. Juliet/West Wilson County all received a check for $3,155.45. The revenue, from the auction of unclaimed property, was recently approved unanimously by the Mt. Juliet Board of Commissioners to be appropriated as a donation to the four organizations. The organizations received their funds on Friday, September 19, 2014.
