A secret Santa who has donated more than 81 million won (62,000 dollars) since 2000 has come to a South Korean town again this year, a report said Thursday.
Staff at a residents' centre in the southwestern city of Jeonju on Tuesday found a box containing 20 million won in a parking lot after a phone tip-off from the anonymous benefactor, the Korea Times said.
"Cheer up, breadwinners," read a note.
It said the man has left donations 10 times since 2000, not always at Christmas, but has never been spotted.
Centre workers said they suspect the donor is not rich but a local resident who gives what he has managed to save each year.
"We are glad that such a warm-hearted person lives here," Park Myeong-Hee, head of the residents' centre, was quoted as saying, adding that the money would be donated to 100 local families.
