SPOKANE, Wash. - A little brown box has volunteers at a local food bank asking if someone was really generous or is in a state of panic because they've lost something very valuable.
The story begins at the KHQ annual Hometown Harvest Food Drive. Last Friday, the community donated thousands of dollars worth of meals for local families. But one person may have accidentally given too much.
"I was like, I have no clue what to do with this," Northwest Harvest volunteer, Alex Campbell, said.
Alex normally spends his Tuesdays sorting food.
"I was like woah, I've never seen anything like this" Campbell said.
But not this past Tuesday. Instead, he found more than soup.
"I was just sorting, saw a little brown box in the bag, and thought, 'no way there can't be a ring in it.' And of course, there was," Campbell said.
Alex did what he was supposed to, and called his manager, Dennis Vorhies.
"It looked like an engagement ring to me, all sparkly," Vorhies said.
