FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign received two gold coins weighing at 1 ounce each; total value for both is $3,605.60. One was found last Tuesday in a kettle at Hornbacher’s South 32nd, and another was received from the Hornbacher’s Northport kettle.

A third gold coin was received in the army’s Red Kettle three days later, with an estimated value of $1,800.

To date, the Fargo-Moorhead Red Kettle Campaign has raised $507,707.88, which is 50.8% the $1 million dollar Christmas goal. The Salvation Army serves more than 40,000 meals and also helps with rent, utilities, medication and more.

Nearly 1,000 Christmas food boxes were served on Monday, December 19, with toys for thousands more being provided through the Army’s Toy Towne.

“This is a sign that people in our community continue to open their hearts and give in a variety of ways and means, and we are so grateful,” remarked Major Abe Tamayo.

If you don’t have cash/change, or can’t make it to a kettle, you can also give to the campaign virtually.
