$900 coin dropped into Salvation Army kettle

Dec. 30, 2011

A gold coin worth $900 was dropped into one of the Salvation Army's red kettles in Milwaukee County this week.

The Wauwatosa-based Salvation Army of Milwaukee County has reached just more than 80 percent of its $2.7 million Christmas fundraising campaign goal.

The gold coin came in from an anonymous donor just as the kettles were being put away for the year.

County residents can continue to give through Jan. 31 at SAMilwaukee.org.
