Pa. Salvation Army Gets Diamond Ring, Wedding Band
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) – The Salvation Army says a generous donor dropped a pair of rings into one of its red kettles.
The charity says it received a diamond engagement ring and a wedding band among its donations in northeastern Pennsylvania.
The head of the Salvation Army’s chapter in Wilkes-Barre says the rings were rolled up in a dollar bill and dropped into a kettle on Black Friday. Patty Richwine says it one of the stranger donations the charity has received.
The Salvation Army tells WNEP-TV the rings were appraised at about $600.
Richwine says the Wilkes- Barre chapter raised $150,000 last holiday season and hopes to reach that mark again this year.
