ROSEVILLE, Minn. (WCCO) — A generous and mysterious donor has been stuffing some big bills into the Salvation Army red kettles.

The Salvation Army reports that at five different kettle locations, they have pulled out a tightly-folded stack of 10 crisp $100 bills.

The stacks of cash have popped up at five different kettle locations in the east metro — from Roseville to Maplewood.

The Salvation Army said they have hit the 33 percent mark for their red kettle campaign with a goal of raising $11.4 million. People can still donate until Dec. 31 but the red kettles will disappear on Dec. 24.

People can not only donate at the red kettles, but they can also text “Blessing” to 85944 for a $10 donation which will be added to your cell phone bill.
