(PRESS RELEASE) As a response to the recent tragedies, Greenwich St. Jewelers has launched a “Wear Orange” collection with 100% of proceeds donated to Everytown and Victims First.

The collection is available here. The initiative starts today and will run through June 5th, National Gun Violence Awareness Day, when all are encouraged to wear orange in solidarity against gun violence.

Greenwich St. Co-owners Jennifer Gandia and Christina Gandia Gambale said, “It’s impossible to put into words all of the raw emotions we feel after the recent mass shootings. Feelings that have their roots in Sandy Hook, Parkland, El Paso, Orlando, Las Vegas…the list goes on and on. There have been 214 mass shootings in 2022. It’s not even June. Words are not enough.

We’ve decided to join the #WearOrange movement. We wear orange because in this moment of darkness, it’s a bright reminder that organizations like Everytown and Victims First are fiercely dedicated to reducing gun violence, protecting our communities, and directly aiding families impacted by mass casualty crime.”

Everytown is a movement of more than 8 million parents, survivors, educators, students and everyday Americans working towards ending gun violence by introducing evidence-based solutions in every town.⁠

Victims First is founded and led by surviving victims of mass casualty crime and trusted supporters. They are currently providing direct support to the families in Uvalde through the Texas Elementary School Shooting Victim’s Fund and the Buffalo Shooting Survivors Fund.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
