EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Pete is back again to help Easterseals.

Officials say the anonymous donor has dropped off 41 donations over the past 31 years.

They say he called just after noon Monday, telling the staff they could find his latest donation on the chain link fence outside their headquarters.

There, the staff says they found a bag shaped like a Christmas tree. It had light up bulbs with rolled up $100 bills in between, totaling $3,000.

Staff members say they will use the money to act as Pete’s elves and buy gifts for children with disabilities who are served by Easterseals.

They say, as usual, Pete’s gift included a note that says, “You will hear from me again.”
