(12/6/2019) - The Salvation Army of Bay County took a big step toward its annual red kettle campaign goal with a pair of gold coins this week.

An anonymous donor dropped two gold Krugerrands into the red kettle outside the Kroger on Euclid Avenue in Bay City. They were wrapped inside a dollar bill to conceal them.

Krugerrands are made from an ounce of pure gold in South Africa. Similar coins donated to the Salvation Army have netted more than $1,000 apiece in past years.

The red kettles will be out until Christmas Eve collected money to pay for a variety of Salvation Army programs that take place all year.

We at the Salvation Army are humbled that there is a person with such a giving heart. A thank you to the Kroger’s store on Euclid ave Bay City for allowing The Salvation Army to have our Red Kettle there.
