 (PRESS RELEASE) Jewelers for Children has announced that it will be distributing $475,000 to its charity partners this year. This brings the total donated by the jewelry industry to $57.3 million since the charity began in 1999.

“Serving as board chair through this very challenging year has truly shown me just how beloved Jewelers for Children is in our great industry,” said Debra Puzio, board chair. “The support from our donors has been amazing and being able to make these donations this year is truly an accomplishment the entire industry should be proud of.”

The charity will be making donations to their four legacy charities and three additional organizations that have been supported for many years. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will receive $ 100,000, Make-A-Wish America $ 100,000, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation $ 100,000 and the National CASA/GAL Association will also receive $ 100,000.

Wilkerson Testimonials

After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop

After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different. She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.”
