Local Goodwill receives African artifacts worth thousands

SEATTLE -- Employees at a local Goodwill got the shock of a lifetime when an anonymous donor dropped off a box full of one-of-a-kind African artifacts worth more than $10,000.

The artifacts include masks from Cameroon and Tanzania, sculptures from Congo and Mozambique and much more.

Goodwill discovered the rare pieces inside a non-descript box sent to them by an anonymous donor from Port Townsend. Managers say all of them together appraised at $10,000.

The non-profit is now selling the artifacts, individually, online to raise money for Goodwill jobs training programs.

The Pacific Northwest is home to the three largest Goodwill warehouses in the country. Officials are not saying which warehouse is housing the new artifacts.
