ROSEVILLE, Minn. - Tuesday was officially designated 'Giving Tuesday' in an effort to get people to donate to non-profits.

Apparently the generous donor who's become known as "St. Grand" took it seriously.

Volunteers counting money from The Salvation Army's red kettles Wednesday found two more tightly wrapped bundles of ten $100 bills, one from Rainbow Foods in Roseville and the other from Cub Foods in Arden Hills.

Kettles are still being counted, so there may be more.

The discoveries bring the total of $1,000 drops since the kettles were deployed November 10 to five, including one discovered Tuesday. The unusual method of wrapping the cash makes Salvation Army officials think they were all donated by the same person.

Last holiday season 23 separate $1,000 bundles were dropped in kettles, which are also being credited to "St. Grand."



The two blessed kettles were Rainbow Foods in Roseville and Cub Foods in Arden Hills.
