Local Groups Replace Stolen Tip Jar with Charity Donation

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Some local groups are turning things around for the stolen tip jar at the Kennewick Ranch and Home.

The Columbia River Young Marines joined forces with employees at Ben Franklin Transit and HAPO Community Credit Union in Richland to replace the stolen cash. 

On Friday, Logan and Ashton Singer, who are members of the Young Marines, gave $470 to Ranch and Home, who in turn gave the money to Camp Patriot -- who the store had been collecting the tips for. 

"When we saw the video of the money getting stolen, we didn't like that," Logan said, "so we decided to get all the money to help support the veterans."

Bill Dress, one of the owners of the Kennewick Ranch and Home said, "To have these young marines come in today and come in with a donation to help replace that money to camp patriot, it just makes you feel good about humanity."

Dress says he don't know how much money was in the tip jar, but it's definitely possible the donation was more.
