    Man gives $3,100 to Salvation Army

    ORWIGSBURG, Pa. - Less than two weeks after a man put 30 $100 bills into a Salvation Army kettle, someone decided to do one better.

    On Saturday morning, someone put 31 $100 bills in a Christmas card and dropped it into the tambourine held by Salvation Army volunteer Margaret L. Wetefsky at on Orwigsburg supermarket. The card had a note inside saying, "I want you to be known as the person who collected the largest donation. May God shine on you." It was signed, "Leo."

    "I don't know his last name. I only know him to see him. He had given me money last year, five $100 bills for the last four years straight," Wetefsky said.

    Adam W. Hench, captain of Salvation Army/Pottsville Corps, said the money would be used to help the poor heat their homes.

    The previous big donation was made Dec. 10 at the Schuylkill Mall.
