Anonymous couple donates $50K to Duluth Salvation Army
A Christmas miracle indeed for the Duluth Salvation Army. Someone saw that the red kettle campaign was still far behind their goal.
So a couple decided to bring a $50,000 check to the organization.
This will bring the non-profit so much closer to their goal, and help them fund their programs all year long.
Captain Teri Ellison said, “The weather dealt us a big blow this year as we had to cancel 2 kettle days due to the blizzard, and it affects the overall traffic at the kettles in the aftermath. We are thankful for so many things – the news outlets for telling our story, absolutely everyone who gives at the kettle – either with their time by ringing or giving donations. The mountains of toys and hundreds of volunteer hours – we are humbled by the warmth of people’s hearts at this time of year. We celebrate the great love of God through the gift of his Son at Christmas time, and see that goodness reflected all around us. Merry Christmas!!”
The red kettles will remain out through Christmas Eve, so you still have time to give.
