    How Telehealth Technology is Revolutionizing Healthcare

    The Salvation Army received some unexpected and very generous donations in Frederick, Md., last week.

    Five gold South African Krugerrands were dropped in four kettles in the city Thursday.

    The coins were gifts from Matt Lerner, owner of the Frederick Coin Exchange. He bought them back for $9,000.

    Lerner grew up in Frederick and said it’s important to give back to the community. He also had fun trying to sneak the gold coins into the kettles unnoticed.
