FAKE GOLD COIN FOUND INSIDE OF THE SALVATION ARMY RED KETTLE
Donations needed to reach the annual fundraising goal
Miami, FL (December 10, 2020) – When Salvation Army officials discovered the gold coin in one of their Red Kettles Tuesday night in front of a Miami Lakes storefront they were filled with joy, enthusiasm and honored that community members were supporting their neighbors in need. With fears that the annual fundraiser will bring in 50% less funds in a year where more people are in need, The Salvation Army leaders knew that a gold coin could be the difference between a family waking up in their home or being evicted this Christmas. In the wake of the pandemic, The Salvation Army Miami Area Command made a goal to help “Rescue Christmas” for 3,000 local children and over 1,500 families. Finding the gold coin affirmed that they were approximately $1,800 closer to providing hope for many. Their excitement quickly wore off after flipping the coin over and seeing the word “COPY” stamped across it.
“I called Gables Coin and Stamp Shop immediately Wednesday morning, hoping that our suspicions were wrong,” said Major Roy Williams, Administrator for The Salvation Army in Miami. “I was disappointed when it was confirmed that the coin was indeed a fake, funds would have been used to support local families who are really struggling right now.”
The Salvation Army bells will continue to ring outside stores through Christmas Eve and the organization is optimistic that, with the community’s support, they can still reach their fundraising goal. Contributions to the red kettles stay right here in the Miami community to serve those experiencing hard times and provide a pathway to self-sufficiency for people in need in need.
Donations to The Salvation Army can also be made online at www.SalvationArmyMiami.org or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
Volunteers are crucial to the success of the Red Kettle Campaign. It is not too late for individuals, families, groups, and businesses to sign up to volunteer to ring the bell! Visit www.RegistertoRing.com and select the location, day, and time you would like to volunteer.
