'Tis the season for giving, and one anonymous donor proved that in full– again.
Salvation Army spokesperson Andrea Kenski told the AP that an unknown donor dropped a 1980 South African Kruggerand coin with an estimated worth of $1,200 into a kettle outside of a Kroger grocery store in St. Clair Shores.
Apparently, this isn't the first time the St. Clair Shores Kroger kettle has received an extra dose of gold.
Last year, a donor also dropped a Kruggerand coin into the pot at this exact same location.
“St. Clair Shores has now become part of a national mystery around anonymous donations of collectible gold coins,” Kenski told the Battle Creek Inquirer
. “A handful of locations across the country have repeatedly received these gold coins — each valued over $1,000 — in the same red kettle each year.”
The gold coin is worth “enough to help feed 10 hungry people a year, or help provide coats to keep 48 children warm this winter season,” she said.
The Salvation Army, of course, isn't the only charity needing help this holiday season. Here's a guide to other Michigan charities
