A shocking find was in a Florida trash bin Tuesday morning -- gifts that were supposed to be shipped to children Haiti.

Plastic containers neatly packaged with toys and necessity items inside were found in what was supposed to be an empty trash container.

Marie and Stefano LaCommare found the gifts, marked in age groups, boys and girls, Tuesday, as they emptied the trash from their family restaurant.

Some of the boxes contained toys, while others some necessity items.

A nearby church quickly came forward with an answer.

That person was supposed to be paid after the delivery was complete, so they did not receive any payment.
