The Salvation Army spokesman said he would like Barbadians to donate despite their economic circumstances, stating that while the charity had to dig into its internal resources to make up for a shortfall last year, there was no such cushion this year.

Last Christmas season, another gold 1979 Krugerrand coin was put into the kettle. The coin is not particularly rare but it is literally worth its weight in gold.

In both cases, as in earlier years, the coins were wrapped inside a dollar bill.

"I was in the flood of Agnes in 1972 and I don't know what I would have done without the Salvation Army", said Maggie Kozak.

A 67-year old woman, who was identified as Ashatai Kamble , was hit by his auto and later succumbed to injuries in a hospital. As per onlookers, the auto was speeding and the driver lost control of the vehicle, which ended up ramming into the woman.

The Red Kettle drive dates back to 1891 when Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee anxious about people going hungry in San Francisco. "We find unusual items in our kettles from time to time".

"This one, however, is a tremendous boost to the bell ringing campaign", according to Fowler.

In Broward, the Christmas kettle campaign runs through December 23 at 45 locations across the county using individual volunteers and volunteers from civic groups. "Whoever this donor is, I just want to say thanks for the helping us and this community". Families can apply to get Christmas assistance through the Salvation Army's annual "Angel Tree" program.

This year, the Red Kettle Campaign rings at 15 locations in the area including Jewel-Osco and Walmart.
