Seeing is Believing

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Although I wasn’t in South Bend, IN over the weekend for The Salvation Army’s Kroc Community Center grand opening, news articles from the area are buzzing with details from the day’s event! According to our friends there, thousands of community members showed up to check out the awesome amenities of the long-awaited center.

Apparently “seeing is believing”.

Donated Ring is Up for Bid!

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Back in December, employees of The Salvation Army of Kansas City, KS were elated to find a .82 carat European-cut diamond wrapped in an unmarked piece of paper that had been dropped in a Salvation Army red kettle outside of a Walmart store in Shawnee, KS.

Meierotto’s Jewelers, a local supporter of The Salvation Army, donated not only a free appraisal of the ring, but also an additional 18 karat white gold ring. Combined, the beautiful ring is 1.32 carats total diamond weight and valued at around $3,000.
