Salvation Army officials are selling one of the more unusual items they've collected during their red kettle fund drives — a diamond wedding ring given to bell ringers outside a north Georgia grocery store.
They say a couple approached bell ringers outside a Kroger store in Calhoun on Dec. 22 and left the ring.
The couple also left a Christmas card with a note on the back that said they were still deeply in love, and thought the Salvation Army could make better use of the ring than they could. The card also said "All for Jesus."
The ring is now on sale at a downtown Dalton jewelry store, where sealed bids are being taken for the next 30 days. The ring will then be sold to the highest bidder, with money going to support the Salvation Army's services.
