The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign received a golden gift Thursday in Orlando.
To the organization’s surprise, sitting among the usual donations of dollar bills and change, was a 1904 gold coin, which contains 1 ounce of pure gold, The Salvation Army said.
“We see generosity on many levels this time of year. Our Red Kettle Program provides us with necessary funding to provide services for those in need all year round. We are grateful for this generous donation and wish the donor a blessed Christmas season,” Salvation Army Capt. Ken Chapman said.
