A small bar of gold has found its way to The Salvation Army of Michigan City this season – slipped into one of the red kettles. Valued at roughly $1,260, the bar is one ounce of fine gold. It was found in a kettle that was stationed at the Big R store on south Franklin Street, and was dropped into the kettle sometime on Thursday. The gold was wrapped in small piece of paper that simply said, “Love weighs more than gold,” which Major Becky Simmons says reflects the love and support The Salvation Army receives from the community throughout the year. This is the second consecutive year The Salvation Army of Michigan City has received an anonymous gold donation in one of their red kettles. Last year, two gold coins were found on the same day, but in two separate kettles. For more information about The Salvation Army of Michigan City, call (219) 874-6885.
