Partnership with Jewelers For Children
November 19, 2020

When the holiday season approaches, we are reminded of the importance of giving back. There is no better tradition of spreading holiday cheer than helping those who are less fortunate. During October, we had the pleasure of teaming up with Jewelers for Children to raise money and awareness for the 4th year in a row.

Jewelers for Children was established in 1999 to help kids who have been affected by illness, abuse, and neglect. Since its founding, JFC has raised over $57 million for programs that support children in need. This incredible foundation partners with many organizations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, the Make-A-Wish® America, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the National CASA Association

We hosted several fundraising initiatives during the month to support the cause, kicking off with “Split the Pot.” Pit crew members purchased tickets to participate, and the total pot was split 50/50 between the winning ticket number and JFC. The pot reached $1201 with everyone buying tickets, up until the last second!

Although this year did make things a bit tricky, we were also able to pull off a bake sale. Mini muffins and pumpkin whoopie pies were both crowd favorites. All proceeds were donated to JFC.

Last but not least, we organized a raffle. With the help of our talented staff members, 22 items were donated. Raffle items included parking spots, handcrafted goods, and a few stunning pieces of woodwork from Grainwell. With these generous donations, we were able to raise over $1,200!

To spread further awareness, we challenged our social media followers to wear certain colors on a specific day of the week and tag Jewelers for Children. Jewel Craft donated $1 to JFC for each person that posted a photo in the correct color. It was amazing to see everyone who participated in supporting the cause.

Above everything, we recognize how important it is to give back and support foundations like Jewelers for Children. It was incredible to see our employees and customers come together to raise money for important causes during crucial times. Giving back during the holidays isn’t just a fun way to come together as a company, but also a reminder of what the season is truly about. The excitement of our staff members coming together for JFC kicked off our holiday season in the best way.

We have been working with Jewel Craft for over 20 years and I continue to use them because they are reliable. It’s like having my own 30,000 sq. foot shop, that’s how easy they are to work with. Expectations are always met and but most importantly, they are met in a timely matter.

We LOVE Jewel Craft. Their customer service and quality of work is why we have been using Jewel Craft for over 15 years. We use them for repairs as well as custom design and they really do make dreams come true for our customers.
Margaret, Engelberts
I am a goldsmith but do not have all of the tools and time to do my own custom work, so I work directly with Jewel Craft to make it easy for me and perfect for my clients. If I need a shank that is 2.35mm wide and provide my own diamonds, Jewel Craft follows all of my design details and makes the ring 2.35mm wide and sets the diamonds to perfection.

First batch of jobs just came back from Jewel-Craft, and we are VERY pleased! Excellent communication, quality work, quick turnaround, reasonable prices. Everything we hoped for! Thanks Ross!

Jewel Craft makes it easy. I have goldsmiths on staff but when they are on vacation or we have overflow, I can count on Jewel Craft to get our repairs done so we don’t miss a beat. I also use them for custom design jobs due to their high level of technology and efficiency.
Donna, Boyle Jewelers
I just wanted to take a minute to express “Much Thanks” to the team of people that take care of me on a daily basis. Alyssa, Stephanie, and Lisa are always on top of things for me. For the last couple of weeks, after I told them that I’m preparing to go on my first vacation in over a year, I’ve noticed that they’ve been working very hard to meet (and usually beat) my deadlines to help ensure that I can vacation worry-free about my jewelry repairs. That means so much to me.
Michael, Williamsburg Jewelers
I received my most recent repair work this morning and wanted to reach out before time and the season get away from me. I've been in the jewelry business for nearly 25 years and I've seen "the good, the bad and the ugly" come out of the repair shop. You and your staff have given me an opportunity to compete for repairs with quality service I can promote with confidence. Thank you so very much.
