ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. - A very generous secret Santa has again dropped a gold coin worth $1,300 into a Detroit-area Salvation Army red kettle.
A Salvation Army of Metro Detroit spokesman told local media the anonymous donor dropped a 1980 South African gold Krugerrand into a red kettle at a Kroger in St. Clair Shores. The Salvation Army says someone has deposited a Krugerrand, worth $1,300, into a red kettle for the past six years around the same time and at the same location.
