BURLINGTON, N.C.– It’s the season for bell ringing, donating, gifting and surprise gold coins.
Once again the anonymous ‘gold coin’ donor has paid a visit to the Salvation Army kettle in Mebane, North Carolina.
For the past several years an individual has repeatedly dropped a gold coin in the kettle of the Lowe’s Food in and it happened again Monday, according to the Salvation Army.
After leaving the one-of-a-kind coin, the secret donor calls to make sure the coin was received. Captain Jimmy Taylor with the Salvation Army in Alamance County, N.C., said this year the coin was an Australian Kangaroo $100 gold piece.
“I am taken back with each passing year that someone continually gives in such a fun and amazing way. The generosity and support for The Salvation Army in this community is astounding. I thank whomever you are for continuing to help us ‘Do the Most Good’ in Alamance County,” Taylor said.
The gold piece will bring a value around US$1,200 and the money will be used to further support the ministries of The Salvation Army in Alamance County.
