Good Samaritan drops gold leaf coin worth $1200 in Red Kettle

Henschke and Lisa Harrison helped get the pies ready

The one-ounce Canadian gold coin is work about $1,320. Police said that location is not manned by the Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army also uses Red Kettle funds to assist those trying to leave a life of addiction in their drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

The money raised is used to help people in need throughout the year.

The Salvation Army has seen a considerable drop in its Red Kettle Campaign this season, but the donation of several gold coins worth thousands of dollars is pushing the organization closer to its goal. These programs include feeding the hungry, providing shelter for those in need, providing safety for victims of human trafficking, and more. "This year, we chose the Salvation Army". This year, together we collected more than 216,000 cans (and still counting!) at our locations. In 2015, 15.8 million households were food insecure.




"We ended up having to fill a good many of them, but we made sure we were very generous and I just know these kids are going to feel really blessed come Christmas morning", Stewart said.

Previous year in Massachusetts, The Salvation Army provided over 2.4 million meals, almost 200,000 nights of shelter, over 67,000 days of childcare and 343,333 Christmas gifts for children.

Bells are still ringing at local malls and shops as Salvation Army volunteers struggle to get attention for their red kettles. Kettles will remain at storefronts across Metro Atlanta through December 23.
