Jewelers Mutual Group Donates $500,000 to 3 Organizations In Band Together Charitable Campaign

(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — Jewelers Mutual Group announced the culmination of its charitable campaign, Band Together, for 2020, resulting in $500,000 in total donations to three deserving organizations — Feeding America, Kids In Need Foundation, and Stand Up To Cancer. The amounts donated were based on votes by the company’s personal jewelry policyholders.

“In a year of unprecedented challenges, banding together to help make a difference has been more important than ever before,” said Scott Murphy, Jewelers Mutual president and CEO. “The three organizations chosen are diverse in the causes they support, but all have one thing in common, and that is helping people when they need it most. It was remarkable to see our employees and policyholders come together throughout the past year to support the people and causes they are passionate about.”

Votes were made by Jewelers Mutual policyholders during the voting period.
Based on policyholder votes, Feeding America received $194,000, Kids In Need Foundation $150,000 and Stand Up To Cancer $156,000.

Policyholders’ votes and corresponding Jewelers Mutual donations impacted the three organizations in the following ways:

  • Feeding America
    • The donation of $194,000 helps provide at least 1,940,000 meals.*
  • Stand Up To Cancer
    • The donation of $156,000 supported Stand Up ToCancer’s innovative cancer research programs.
  • Kids In Need Foundation
    • The donation of $150,000 supplied 2,000 students with backpacks, each filled with essential school supplies to begin the new school year.

Jewelers Mutual looks forward to continuing to give back in 2021 and support people in need throughout our community and nationwide. For more information on Jewelers Mutual’s giving efforts, visit here and view this infographic highlighting the past year’s initiatives.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
