The Salvation Army receives first gold coin of the season

The Salvation Army has received its first gold coin of the season in a Belleville red kettle. A 1-ounce gold coin worth approximately $1,200 was anonymously dropped into a kettle manned by volunteers from the Fairview Heights Rotary Club over the weekend outside of the Dillard’s located at St. Clair Square Mall.

“Gold coins found in Salvation Army Red Kettles have become a much-anticipated holiday tradition,” said Captain Heath Sells, corps officer of the Belleville Salvation Army. According to Captain Sells, the organization has seen a marked increase in the number of families, individuals and seniors requesting emergency help with rent and utilities this year, which is one of the primary uses for Red Kettle donations. The fundraising also goes towards year-round services including food assistance, programs for children, and other programs that offer hope for families in these economically depressed times.
