Gold coin donated in N. Ind. Salvation Army kettle

– The Salvation Army says a donor anonymously dropped a gold Krugerrand coin into one of its red kettles in northern Indiana.

Salvation Army Maj. Tim Best says the coin was wrapped in a $100 bill with a typed message that read: “Your Vision Becomes Clear Only When You Look Into Your Heart.” It was dropped into the kettle on Dec. 6.

Best says the coin worth an estimated $1,200 was left in a kettle outside a Sam’s Club in Mishawaka, east of South Bend. He says the group received another gold coin in the same red kettle with a similar typed message two years ago.

Best says the Salvation Army is thankful for the donation.
