'Mystery Donor' Gives Salvation Army Donations a Boost | Community Spirit
The Salvation Army announced that it has hit 33 percent of the Christmas Campaign goal of $11.4 million. Part of that success is due to some generous donors that have been stuffing $1,000 into kettles around the Twin Cities.
According to a statement from the organization, a mystery donor – or donors – has been putting a tightly folded stack of 10 crisp $100 bills into kettles around the Twin Cities. This has happened five times this year.
The bills have shown up at the Roseville Cub Foods, the Roseville Rainbow Foods, the Shoreview Rainbow Foods, the St. Anthony Wal-Mart, and the Maplewood Cub Foods.
So far, the Salvation Army has raised $3.8 million.
