We’ve all been to the mall this holiday season, and MOST of us smile, maybe say “Merry Christmas”, and go about our business, when we see bell-ringers outside. However in the city of Fort Oglethorpe, GA several unnamed donors dropped what amounted to nearly six-thousand dollars in hundred dollar bills inside of a Salvation Army bucket outside of a K-Mart.
According to Kimberly George, A Salvation Army volunteer…
“A gentlemen walked up, and put some money in the kettle, and said ‘Merry Christmas, remember me.'”
Jennifer Fisher was the volunteer that discovered the large donation back at the charity’s headquarters:
“I just started screamin’, I found different little piles of hundred-dollar bills. So, everyone was real excited and started counting them out loud, and everybody was cheering.”
It’s good to see that even in an economic downslide, people are still willing to give of themselves and their bank accounts to benefit those that truly need the assistance.
