    Born in Mexico
    Resided in Pomona, California
    Employee at Veterans Thrift Store in Pomona, California
    Discovered $30,000 inside a box of clothing donated to the store (March 4, 2008)
    Received media attention after the money was returned to its owner's family (March 2008)
    While sorting some donated clothes in a box, she almost disposed of the envelopes she discovered in the box which contained the money.
    When she discovered the cash inside the envelopes after opening them, she at first thought it was counterfeit.
    The family of the recently deceased woman who owned the money stated that they were unaware of the cash inside the box, and they didn't know their relative had such savings before her death.
    She required an interpreter during media interviews due to her limited knowledge of English.
    Once she suspected that the cash was not counterfeit, she stated that she didn't think twice about turning the money over to her supervisor for verification.
    After the money was traced and returned to the owner's family, Nunez received a cash reward for her honesty in reporting the discovered money.
    She stated that she planned to send some of her reward money to her mother in Mexico to help enable her mother to have eye surgery.
    Her honesty regarding the incident earned her media attention and public admiration.
