The Salvation Army Tulsa Command revealed a special gift from its anonymous "elf" received over the weekend.

The coin, a South African Krugerrand, is worth an estimated $1700 dollars and was dropped into a red kettle on a day when the donations were being matched by Tulsa Gold and Silver.

Salvation Army officials say donations are critical this year because of the unusually large number of "forgotten angels" - angels who were adopted from Angel Trees but the gifts have not been returned. The Salvation Army is working to fill the gap for these 700 forgotten angels.

Distribution of the toys began Monday in Sapulpa and Broken Arrow and continues Wednesday for the remaining Tulsa area.

A final matching gift day will be Sat., Dec. 22 when donations to the Red Kettles will be matched by Tulsa Gold and Silver up to $15,000.

The Salvation Army really needs to sell their property to the city of Tulsa and move the courts to that location. Run tunnels to the jail. Save a lot of money on transportation, and puts them closer to Avalon. Use the day center for county courts. Turn old courts into hotels. Move day center to Catoosa.
