MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) - Someone filled the Salvation Army’s Red Kettles with nearly $10,000 in crisp $100 bills folded in the exact same way.

The donation came Tuesday and was spread among the kettles from Viera to Cocoa Beach.

Florida Today (https://on.flatoday.com/1wmh3h7 ) reports Salvation Army officials believe the money came from a single source. The amounts ranged from $500 to $1,000 per kettle.

The donations generated a lot of excitement for bell ringers, who typically see smaller denominations.

The Salvation Army’s Capt. Angel Calderon says the money will go a long way in helping local families during the holidays.
