Salvation Army Recieves Gold Coin In Sturgis



Bookmark and Share

The Western Division of the Salvation Army set the goal for this year's Kettle Drive at $135,000 and they finished up the drive with a special gift.

The organization closed down the kettles early Monday afternoon, ending up with $189,000.

And once again, for the third straight year, they got their gold coin. Someone dropped the coin into the kettle at the Shopko in Sturgis. It's a gold coin, wrapped in a 100 dollar, wrapped up in the same Charlie Brown cartoon that they get every year.

Salvation Army Development Director Mark Kirkeby says, "To have somebody surprise us and go out of their way to wrap up this gold coin in the same historical cartoon from Charlie Brown.  Supporting the Salvation Army by the thousands of people we have throughout the Black Hills.  This time of year, it's just awesome.  It puts a smile and a warm heart on all of us."

The coin is worth more than $1,600. This year's final total for the western division is a 12 percent increase over last year.
