Anonymous Donor Gives Gold Coins

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – An anonymous donor has arranged for four gold coins to be given to two Wichita nonprofits.

Two gold coins were given Tuesday morning to the Guadalupe Clinic and two more later to the Lord’s Diner.

For more than a decade, the Wichita Community Foundation has presented the gold coins to local nonprofits from an anonymous donor.

The first set of gold coins was distributed in 2005 to five organizations. This year’s coins are valued at $1,064 each.

The Guadalupe Clinic provides health care for those in need at three locations. The Lord’s Diner provides 2,200 to 2,500 meals daily at a cost of a $1 a meal at four Wichita locations.
