WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Salvation Army in Waterloo received the 12th gold coin of the season. It was dropped in the red kettle at the Walgreens on Ridgeway Avenue.

The coin was accompanied with a noted that read: “On the 12th Day of Christmas: I give in the spirit of Christmas. Thank you Salvation Army, for all that you do. Merry Christmas!”

The red kettles are now put away until next November, but the fundraising campaign continues for the nonprofit.
