As a downtown Duluth bank gets ready to move to make way for the new maurice's building, they are asking local non-profits if they want an piece of bank memorabilia: an industrial-strength safe.

Beacon Bank is only moving 120 feet from their current location, but they're leaving their safe behind.

They say if anyone can move it by the end of the week, it is theirs to keep.

But the thing is... a safe is pretty heavy.

"It's definitely going to take more than one person to carry," said Ryan Miles, a associate vice president with the bank. "It's a large vault. It's very heavy, but I think it's going to be a well-used piece of equipment for that non-profit."

Miles says a non-profit group that handles a lot of cash would be an ideal candidate.
