The group donated to Save the Children.

(Press Release) Jewelers for Children announced that it made a $10,000 donation to Save the Children to support efforts in the devastated areas following Hurricane Harvey.

“Everyone has been overwhelmed with the news from the effected region and our board felt it was very important for JFC to contribute to the relief efforts. Our thoughts are with all of the people by this horrible tragedy, particularly those that are part of our industry family. Providing financial assistance from the industry’s charity was an easy decision,” said Dennis Ulrich, JFC chairman.

Jewelers for Children, whose mission is to provide support to charities that primarily benefit children, chose Save the Children to receive its support after working with the group in the past on a number of disaster relief responses. Save the Children’s concentration on helping children and their families recover as quickly as possible and return to a more normal way of life clearly meets with the mission of the charity.

Including the contribution to the Save the Children, JFC has previously announced $2.2 million in support to its legacy charities this year.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
