LUBBOCK, Texas -

 A West Texas widow's anonymous donation of a ring at a Salvation Army red kettle has prompted an effort to get the jewelry that belonged to her late husband back to her.

The woman dropped the ring in a kettle outside a Lubbock supermarket Monday evening.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports she attached a note to the ring. It read in part that her husband "had a giving heart and would want to help however he could."

The Salvation Army says it's now looking for the woman after a man moved by her story offered to pay for the ring if it could be returned to her.
