Salvation Army gets another visit from a “secret” Santa

Posted: Updated:
FORT OGLETHORPE, GA (WRCB) - A person with a generous soul and deep pockets has again “struck” the Salvation Army's Red Kettle at the K-Mart on Battlefield Parkway Tuesday with a sizable donation.

Fifty $100 bills were deposited, along with a handwritten note, stating “May the peace of Christ be with you always.  Please give and give generously!”

“We are always surprised and always grateful when we see such a significant gift in our Red Kettles,” states Major Algerome Newsome, Salvation Army Area Commander of the Greater Chattanooga Area. “We are celebrating this gift, but also know we have a long way to go before reaching our goal of $450,000.00.”

Donations can be made to any of the Salvation Army's local Red Kettles, online at or by calling 1-800-Sal-Army.

Checks can be mailed to The Salvation Army at 822 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga, TN, 37403.  All donations remain local to assist with local needs.
