Jewelers for Children Program: Help Andrews Jewelers Help Kids in Need with JFC Jewelry Care Kit Purchase

Running a national jewelry business comes with many exciting opportunities for each employee at Andrews Jewelers. Our leadership, district managers, store managers, and every employee, work hard every single day to help millions of brides say, “I Do”, help daughters and sons surprise their mothers with heart felt jewelry treasures, and educate nervous boyfriends, fiancés, and husbands pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts. As exciting as it is to help create lifelong memories many will never forget, it’s even more exciting to have the opportunity to give back to the community and those less fortunate. Once again, since the inception of Jewelers for Children, 15 years ago, Andrews Jewelers proudly supports Jewelers for Children (JFC) through the Jewelers for Children Gem & Jewelry Care Kit.

What is Jewelers for Children?

Since 1999, Jewelers for Children has donated more than $40 million to help children who are the victims of catastrophic illness or life-threatening abuse and neglect. By partnering with great jewelry companies, such as Andrews Jewelers, Jewelers for Children is able to meet their goals year after year.

The Jewelers for Children Legacy Charities are the “jewels” in the organization’s success. Some of these organizations have been JFC charity partners since the founding and other worthy causes have been added over the years. These include:

  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

  • Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

  • Make-A-Wish Foundation of America

  • National CASA Association

JFC also works with other organizations that while not legacy charities, are just as important in helping us to meet our mission:

  • Make-A-Wish Foundation International

  • Santa-America Fund

Additionally, Jewelers for Children has provided support to a number of organizations on an ad-hoc basis.

How YOU Can Help and Andrews Jewelers Involvement

Since partnering with JFC, Andrews Jewelers customers and employees, have extended many ways to continually raise money in order to help children in need, to include:

  • Through offering the kit for sale with proceeds going to JFC when any customers purchase a Jewelers for Children Gem & Jewelry Care Kit to JFC. Sales have averaged over $70,000 in cleaner kit sales annually.

  • Displaying Jewelers for Children donation canisters in each of our stores where customers and employees can simply drop in their spare change as donations. Last year this initiative garnished $25,000 in donations to JFC.

  • Contributing payroll deducted donations from Andrews Jewelers employees now totaling more than $500 monthly or over $6,000 annually

  • And finally, the Gitanjali USA (parent company of Andrews Jewelers) Chief Operating Officer, Mike Feinman, rode in the hot Vegas Sun, gaining contributions rode per mile with a total of $1,170 to give as a donation to JFC.
