An in-depth investigation done by WTHR 13 in Indianapolis unearthed evidence that Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana was unintentionally allowing customers to buy various documents containing donors' personal information, including Social Security numbers, medical records and tax returns.

A Goodwill worker and shopper notified WTHR of the issue after she found 39 pounds of personal paperwork in a donated box of items.

The investigation caused Goodwill Industries to hire an outside law firm to review the matter and help it develop better policies for disposing of such items.
