Three more diamond rings donated to Salvation Army in area

The Salvation Army Worcester Corps has received three anonymous diamond ring donations over the last two weeks.

The special donations come as the Worcester-area corps seeks to raise $50,000 to hit its annual Red Kettle fundraising goal.

Salvation Army staff discovered a diamond ring at the bottom of a Red Kettle taken from Walmart, 137 West Boylston St., West Boylston. The ring was donated anonymously last Tuesday.

Two other rings were donated anonymously on successive days earlier this month at Stop & Shop, 290 Turnpike Road, Westborough.

“These wonderful acts of kindness continue to bring joy to the entire community at a time of year when so many people need help,” said Capt. Daniel Brunelle of the Salvation Army Worcester Citadel Corps. “We’re hopeful these important acts of generosity will inspire others to donate.”
