ROSEVILLE, Minn. - The spirit of giving can apparently be downright grand.
So grand, apparently, that the big hearted donor affectionately referred to as "St. Grand" by the Salvation Army has apparently dropped another $1,000 donation into a red holiday kettle.
Salvation Army volunteers counting the contents of red kettles this morning found a tightly folded bundle of 10 crisp $100 bills from a kettle that was stationed at the Roseville Byerly's on Monday.
It's the third $1,000 donation made since the kettles were deployed across Minnesota November 10. Last season, 23 separate $1,000 cash gifts were made in the same way, leading the Salvation Army to believe they all come from the same person.
To date The Salvation Army has raised $1.5 million of its $9.8 million seasonal goal. If you want to help out, ringers are still needed to staff the more than 400 Twin Cities kettles through December 24.
Volunteers can sign up online atthe Salvation Army website, or by calling 651-746-3519.
