Ft Myers Salvation Army Finds Gold Coins In Red Kettles

Ft Myers Salvation Army bell ringers have "struck gold" 3 separate times this year. On Tuesday a gold Krugerrand worth approximately $1500 in 2 separate kettles, 1 in front of the Publix at Colonial Blvd. and and Summerlin Rd. in Ft Myers, and the other at the Publix at College Pkwy. and South Pointe Blvd in South Ft Myers. Both coins were wrapped in a note with a verse from the Bible regarding the importance of charity and giving. The handwriting on each of these notes seemed to match the handwriting on a similarly themed note found with another Krugerrand last week at the Colonial Blvd. Publix.


Salvation Army Bell Ringer In Ft Myers

The Salvation Army Bell Ringers have a long history of helping needy families, seniors, and the homeless by providing Christmas dinners, clothing, toys for kids whose families are struggling, and basic necessities.


Volunteers distribute gifts to shut-ins in hospitals and nursing homes, and shelters are open for sit-down dinners. The Salvation Army endeavors to bring spiritual light and love to those it serves at Christmas so that the real meaning of the season is not forgotten.


Many families receive aid over a period of months after the Christmas season as well, people struggling with difficult family, emotional, or employment problems.
