Salvation Army Surprise: Valuables Ending Up in Donation Kettles
More than just spare change has been turning up in those store-front red Salvation Army kettles.
Tom Graham of FOX News Radio affiliate WRDU reports from Raleigh, NC:
The Salvation Army in Winston-Salem, NC got a sizable donation dropped off in one of their red kettles this week: a diamond and emerald bracelet. Kent Davis of the Salvation Army says they had the jewelry appraised.
(Davis) “When he looked at it, he said ‘It’s probably an estimated value around $3,000.’ I’m like, ‘You’re kidding me!'”
The expensive donation isn’t that unusual. In northeastern Kansas, a lone diamond was dropped off in a red kettle there. In central Pennsylvania and Tennessee, rare South African gold coins worth more than $1,700 a piece have turned up in kettles. The donors remain a mystery.
