Another gold coin has been delivered to a Wichita nonprofit.

An anonymous donor dropped a gold coin in a red Salvation Army kettle over the weekend.

The coin, valued at $1,700, is the third coin given anonymously this month to a Wichita nonprofit. The other two were given earlier this month to the Guadalupe Clinic and the Lord’s Diner.

In a press release issued by the Salvation Army, Maj. Douglas Rowland, the Wichita city commander of the Salvation Army, said: “It’s always a blessing to witness the generosity of Wichitans during the holiday season, and we’re especially amazed when we find gold coins.”
