Frederique Constant Honors Educators Nationwide for Teacher Appreciation Week

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Frederique Constant offers its continued support of the nonprofit organization, DonorsChoose, and celebrate educators for Teacher Appreciation Week by pledging $20,000 in donations in partnership with 10 retailers nationwide. Each retailer will have the opportunity to support their local communities by awarding the teachers and schools of their choosing.

Frederique Constant announces the following retail partners and looks forward to making a difference on a local level: James Free Jewelers, Bernie Robbins Jewelers, Mountz Jewelers, Longs Jewelers, Murphy Jewelers, Right Time International, Panowicz Jewelers, and Schiffman.

With students easing back into in-person learning and the continued need for optional virtual education solutions, Frederique Constant believes that there is not a more poignant time to support students and teachers as they adjust to the new normal. With the constant need for technology, supplies, and personal protective equipment, Frederique Constant and DonorsChoose are providing teachers with the funding necessary to access these tools.

DonorsChoose enables teachers to request donations for projects, programs or resources that are not included in their regular budget. Founded in 2000, the nonprofit has since helped fund 1.9 million classroom project requests ranging from butterfly cocoons to robotic kits, new books for classrooms, and much more. Donations as small as $1 are accepted. Every donor receives a personalized thank you note from the teacher, photos of the project in action, and a report of how each dollar was spent. Charity Navigator and GuideStar have awarded DonorsChoose, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, its highest ratings for transparency and accountability.

Carla Wilke, Chief Marketing Officer of Citizen Watch America, shared:
“Frederique Constant is honored to be an ongoing partner with DonorsChoose. Through the significant work by DonorsChoose, we are very proud to help give back and show our appreciation to the hard-working teachers who are dedicated to educating their students remotely during this unprecedented time.”

Charles Best, Founder and CEO of DonorsChoose, expressed:
“Our mission is to make it easy for anyone to help a teacher in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education,” said Charles Best, CEO of DonorsChoose. “We are so grateful to have such a dedicated partner in Frederique Constant and to be able to rely on their continued support to reach classrooms on a national scale.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
