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.

Put Your Trust in Wilkerson

To do business successfully with anyone, you need a certain “comfort level.” That’s something that Phillips Pitts, owner of two Parris Jewelers stores in Hattiesburg, Miss., said he felt immediately when he first talked to Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes. He was just about to launch an anniversary sale. And he chose Wilkerson to handle all the details — from the marketing to the sales floor. “Rick cared what was going to happen to Parris Jewelers,” says Pitts. “Not just during the sale but after the sale.” Would he recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers contemplating a large-scale sale? Absolutely, says Pitts, who says the results “exceeded their expectations.” His trust in Wilkerson has only grown after the numbers came in. “They were interested in me fulfilling and what I need to fulfill to make my company better.”
