Secret Santa once again drops $1,300 coin into Salvation Army kettle

06 December 2018

The Salvation Army of Charleston is lacking donations this year with their Red Kettle Campaign.

The organization is accepting toy donations until December 15.

The pilot has been tried with success other parts of Canada, including Calgary and Edmonton.

"Right away when it was referred to us was we have a Grinch out there, two Grinches", said Chief Podany.

"What I'm telling my bell ringers and my volunteers is that it's a real sign of approval", he said. We're trying to bring awareness to the Salvation Army and if the National Football League doesn't like that then that's on them.

The United States is not part of any output-limiting initiative due to its anti-trust legislation and fragmented oil industry. Washington also gave sanctions waivers to some buyers of Iranian crude, further raising fears of an oil glut next year.

The NFL, however, could look a little better by donating the $13,000 to the Salvation Army.

"I don't think we're ever going to get away from that cash donation option, because that feeling of having your children walk up to the kettle and drop a few coins in - it's iconic".

After the game, Elliott and Prescott pledged $21,000 donations to the Salvation Army, which the Cowboys have matched. The money will go towards programs and services throughout the year, as well as the Christmas hamper program.

The Salvation Army in Calgary is making a desperate plea for new, unwrapped toys ahead of Christmas.
