The Salvation Army got an unusual donation in one of its red kettles this week -- a white gold diamond ring.
The ring came with a note reading, "It was just gathering dust in my jewelry box," and "it will do more good with you," according to a Salvation Army news release.
The anonymous donor also wrote, "Merry Christmas!"
Major Julio Vasquez said the ring's value hasn't yet been determined, but it will be used to help local families.
Never miss a local story.
The Salvation Army has about two dozen kettles stationed at stores around the Tri-Cities.
