Salvation Army finds gold coin in St. Matthews Red Kettle

Two more sessions on Friday for Toys for Tots distribution

Money raised pays for the organization's expenses and to help out the needy in the community with things like food, clothing, vouchers, furniture, Christmas hampers and toys for children.

Lieutenant Bethany Yocum discovered the coin and said, "A really good kettle for us this year might be $100-$300 per day", she said.

"The money that we raise helps pay for rent, phone, electricity, after-school programs", he explained. This year's kettle goal is $700,000.

The coin was apparently donated in a Red Kettle used at the Hubbards Lane Kroger location.

"We are grateful to our community who continually supports The Salvation Army", said Major Butch Frost.

"We were doing fine until about last week", Hughes said. "This is a wonderful season as we are able to help so many families have a wonderful Christmas".

The Salvation Army is spreading holiday cheer to hundreds of families in need.

"It's not going to be like what it's been in years prior because there's so much online purchases", Hughes said. The Salvation Army serves every zip code in the United States.

Welk said past year they raised about $8,000.

"They don't ask for themselves, but to give to others", O'Mara said. In addition to the meals served at the Wisconsin Center, there will be between 1,500 to 2,000 meals, packed up and sent to different centers and churches across the area for people to pick up.

Someone in WAVE County has dropped a gold coin into a Salvation Army Red Kettle.

"Some of our individual kettles have increased, from an individual kettle base from previous year", Hughes said.
