Looks like a Goodwill store in Naples, Fla., is changing its policy on the prosecuting of do-gooders.
The store had sought grand theft charges against a teenage employee who was fired after it was discovered he gave discounts to “customers he thought were in need,” according to the Fort Myers ABC station
. The store said the discounts totaled $4,000.
In a statement to ABC News
, Goodwill said, “After completing our internal investigation we have determined that the individual’s actions were not for personal gain, but rather for the benefit of others.”

Despite its decision to drop the charges against 19-year-old Andrew Anderson, Goodwill felt the need to give a parting shot, saying:
“The thousands of dollars given away could have been used to fund our programs, including our school dedicated solely for youth with intellectual disabilities.”
