(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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
