Man gives diamond ring to Salvation Army

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - November 26, 2008

The ring was handed to August Memmi, a Dauphin County employee who was volunteering for the Salvation Army in Harrisburg during his lunch hour Tuesday.

The young man told Memmi that he'd bought the ring for his mother using money he'd earned mowing lawns, but she died this year and he wanted to put it to good use.

The ring's value was unclear Tuesday; the Salvation Army planned to have it appraised.
