Community Donations Help Recoup Funds Stolen From Salvation Army

In the movies, Christmas spirit is always restored at the very end. Audiences rejoice when The Grinch’s heart grows three sizes, and when George Bailey realizes that it actually is “A Wonderful Life.”

And in D.C., the Salvation Army is rejoicing about the fact that community donations have more than replaced at least $10,000 in Red Kettle donations that were stolen from a community center over the weekend.

Ken Forsythe, spokesman for The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command, says the charitable organization since Sunday has received $10,000 from Thomas C. Goldstein, a partner at a D.C. law firm,
$10,000 from the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, $15,000 from Walmart (which just opened two stores in the District on Wednesday), $10,000 from Koons Automotive Group and $3,000 from a private anonymous donor.
