GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - A generous donation for tens of thousands of dollars to three local charities.

When he got the mail, Lt. Matthew Beatty of the Salvation Army couldn't believe it.

Lt. Matthew Beatty/Salvation Army says, "It was a late Christmas."

A donation of $10,000.

The return address was from CVIC, who said that they did not give it to them.

At the same time, the Red Kettle received a call from Northlands Rescue Mission thanking them for their generous donation of $5,000.

Turns out CVIC also got a donation of $5,000.

It said it was from the Mission, but that wasn’t the case either.

An anonymous donor used the other non-profits as return addresses on the donations.

For CVIC, the cash will help address a shortfall.

For the Mission, it couldn't come at a more critical time, after the state slashed their budget drastically this Spring.

A donation, with no one to thank.

"You don't need to take credit for it, give from your heart and that's what this person did."

It's a gift that's going to impact a lot of lives, and touch a lot of hearts.

The charities say this happened two years ago as well; that time a fake address was used.
