A mystery donor dropped a $200,000 check into a Salvation Army red kettle Saturday in Minneapolis, the second largest donation ever received in a red kettle in the Twin Cities, the Pioneer Press reported.

"We were stunned and thrilled to have received such a large donation," said Lt. Colonel Lonneal Richardson, leader of The Salvation Army Northern Division, in a statement. "This gift comes at a critical time for The Salvation Army."

The donor told the Salvation Army they wanted to remain anonymous, and he hoped the donation would "inspire other people to give as much as they can," spokeswoman Julie Borgen told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

In 2015, a $500,000 check was slipped into a red kettle in Rosemount. It was the largest donation ever received in a Twin Cities red kettle.

The Twin Cities Salvation Army aims to raise $11.7 million by the end of the year.
