You never know what’s inside a letter with no return address. A complaint? Something crazy from a former lover? Anthrax?
The other day, the Westport Y got an anonymous letter. It read:
To whom it may concern,
About 20 years ago I was a kid and a friend and I stole money from the lockers at your Y.
As kids it was a lot of money but as adults it is not that much. $1-$5 here and there over a period of a few weeks. One time we did take a $100 dollar bill.
I only feel it is right to give back what I had taken. I am including a money order for what I feel is my portion of what was stolen from these innocent people just using the locker room at the local YMCA.
Feel free to utilize it in any was possible as I am sure you would not be able to personally give it back to any of the victims.
Surprised and grateful Y officials have earmarked the donation — a money order for $150 — for their annual “Strong Kids” campaign.
They may list the donor as “Anonymous Thief.”
