MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - A generous donation is helping the Salvation Army "ring" in the holidays.
The Salvation Army said they received an anonymous call from a woman saying she had left a special gift at a southwest Miami-Dade Winn Dixie.
"This was a beautiful diamond ring," said the bell ringer who was volunteering at the time. The ring is appraised for $3,000 and it was dropped into the red kettle bucket wrapped in a $20 bill.
It included the followed note:
"There are so many who need help. Keep doing good!"
The Salvation Army said this isn't the first time the mystery donor has done this. Over the years she has dropped of similar pricey donations with notes that include "keep doing good." She always calls in advance, leaves heartfelt notes and is linked to over a handful of donations.
"All we can do is just thank her from the bottom of our hearts and wish her well for being so kind to help us help others," a member of the Salvation Army said.
