$50,000 Red Kettle Donation In Joplin Eight Years In A Row

$50,000 Red Kettle Donation In Joplin Eight Years In A Row

By Erika Brame. CREATED Dec 8, 2013

Salvation Army bell ringers usually see people drop in a few dollars, some coins and on occasion someone plops in a twenty dollar bill.

But for the last eight years in Joplin one lucky kettle gets fifty-thousand dollars hidden inside.

The Secret Santa hides several checks inside a few dollar bills so no ones until the kettle is opened.

It's reported that around 900 families in Joplin need add from the Salvation Army this year and that donation will help them meet those needs.
