For the 42nd year, the anonymous benefactor donated money for kids' gifts

The mysterious donor “Pete” has struck again at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center. WNIN’s John Gibson has the story:

The Rehab Center says it received a call Monday morning from the anonymous benefactor who calls himself Pete.

He said he had just delivered a gift, and told staff to look for his donation outside the nonprofit’s headquarters at 3701 Bellemeade Avenue in Evansville.

A group of staff members followed Pete’s directions and found a gift bag. Inside was a holiday decoration--a red truck with Christmas decorations in the bed and bulbs that light. Tucked in the truck bed were 30 one-hundred-dollar bills -- a donation of $3,000.

Easterseals says Pete has now made 42 holiday donations since 1990, topping $103,000.

Again this year, he stressed that his donation be used to provide gifts to children with disabilities from disadvantaged families served by Easterseals.
