The first gold coin of the season was dropped in the red kettle at Bettendorf’s Schnucks Market on the first day of The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. The coin, a quarter-ounce American Gold Eagle, which has a value of about $500, will be used for The Salvation Army’s work in the Quad-Cities.

The Red Kettle campaign runs from Nov. 9 to Dec. 24. Volunteer bell ringers are still needed. To sign up, visit ringbells.org.

The Salvation Army of the Quad-Cities would like to hear from anyone who heard about the gold coin being dropped in the kettle. If so, call Holly Nomura at 563-324-4808.
