Anonymous donor put $10,000 check into Salvation Army kettle

GREENSBURG, Pa. – A donor who wishes to remain anonymous dropped a $10,000 check into a Salvation Army kettle in western Pennsylvania.

Vanessa Fullwood, the co-commander of the Greensburg Salvation Army, tells the Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/2ikvw9z they find the check Thursday during the emptying of boilers of the day before.

Everett Fullwood, Vanessa’s husband and co-commander, says the check was donated outside the Westmoreland Mall.

The Fullwoods happy with the donation because this year the fundraising campaign has struggled to meet the local section of the $90,000 goal. The group has raised $75,000 and collects money in the red kettles through christmas Eve.

The money helps provide rent and utility assistance for poor families, and to the staff of the local department office with five full-time and one part-time employee.
