A valuable surprise in a red kettle in Germantown, Md., was much-needed according to the Salvation Army.

Maj. Curt Sayre of the Montgomery County Corps was counting the contents of many red kettles Thursday night when he discovered a small, gold Indianhead coin from a kettle from the Giant Food store at 20944 Frederick Road. Attached was a note saying the coin could be returned to the Frederick Coin Exchange in Frederick, Md., for a $1,000 check.

“Keep up the good work!” the note read.

It’s the first holiday season that a gold coin has been found in a local red kettle, according to the Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army hopes to reach $1.6 million in the region this season to help fund a 15 percent increase in services in the region. The Red Kettle Campaign continues through Christmas Eve.
