The Salvation Army has seen a considerable drop in its Red Kettle Campaign this season, but the donation of several gold coins worth thousands of dollars is pushing the organization closer to its goal.
A Tulsa, Oklahoma Salvation Army is grateful to an anonymous donor who left some special coins in a few of their kettles. "It's not the call we'd expect to get at night", or ever said Lt. Steve Pavlakis with the Salvation Army. Funds collected stay local and help families in need at Christmas and all year round. "But it is not too late to give and help your friends and neighbors right here in the Ozarks".
The combined gold was valued at more than $7,000 by Tulsa Gold & Silver, which matched all red kettle donations during the past two Saturdays with $25,000.
Local Salvation Army officials are saying MA is shy of $1 million dollars away from meeting their statewide fundraising goal. Now, Regamey said three-quarters of its volunteer shifts have been covered for the final days.

In addition to the meals served at the Wisconsin Center, there will be between 1,500 to 2,000 meals, packed up and sent to different centers and churches across the area for people to pick up.
"Some of our individual kettles have increased, from an individual kettle base from a year ago", Hughes said.
