He dumped 80,000 pennies in front of his daughter's home as his final payment.

Avery Sanford, who just turned 18, said she and her mom took those pennies and turned his act of anger into something positive for families in need.

She's been estranged from her father for years but said she wanted to do something good with something that was a hurtful and embarrassing situation.

"It is really hurtful and damaging to your kids when you do things like that. And it doesn't matter how old your kids are. It doesn't matter if they're a young child or an adult," she told WTVR. "The actions of your parents will always have some effect on you."
