You might wanna check your change for rare coins!
According to WXYZ, a valuable rare gold coin gets dropped into a Salvation Army Red Kettle in the Detroit area. Earlier this week, an anonymous donor dropped a one-ounce 1980 South African gold Krugerrand coin into a Salvation Army Red Kettle at a Kroger in St Clair Shores, Michigan.
It’s the tenth year in a row that a donor has deposited a Krugerrand into a Red Kettle in the area. The gold coin is worth more than $17-hundred and brings The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit that much closer to their fundraising goal of $8.2-million.
Money donated to Red Kettles helps The Salvation Army to continue their mission of feeding, clothing, and supporting people in need. In 2021 alone, The Salvation Army provided more than two-million meals, over 400-thousand nights of shelter and around 88-thousand Christmas gfits for children and seniors.
