BAD AXE, Mich. (AP) – The secret benefactors keep stepping forward in Huron County, where Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson says a donor has contributed another $1,000 to his department’s $100 bill holiday giveaway.
Hanson says “another family representative wishing to remain anonymous” came to his office in Bad Axe on Tuesday afternoon with 10 $100 bills. That raises the total giveaway to $5,000.
Hanson says the department received five separate anonymous gifts of $1,000 on Dec. 18, 19 and 22, as well as Saturday and Tuesday.
The sheriff says “10 more recipients have been chosen and their holiday cards have been addressed and sealed with a $100 bill in each of them.” He says all should be delivered by noon on New Year’s Eve.
