TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Salvation Army has come across some unique donations!

News 10 spoke with Salvation Army Captain Jason Schaal who showed us 2010 Walking Liberty coins, all worth about $20 apiece!

So far the Salvation Army has received six of them. Schaal says by now he doesn't think the donations are random.

"We got the first one the first week and it was kind of a neat curiosity, and then, they just kind of started showing up,” he said. “By the time the second one came in we thought, well, maybe this is a coincidence. By the time the third one came in we knew there was someone out there blessing us with these things.”

The Salvation Army is still trying to reach their fundraising goal.

You can help by donating at any store front location, sending a donation to the Terre Haute Salvation Army Office or by texting "THKETTLE" to 41-444.
