I attended a check presentation this afternoon where Dave and D.J. Necker of Necker’s Jewelers presented Family Resources with a check for $1,350.
The company has a charitable program called the “Gift of Giving” in conjunction with their advertising on WQAD-TV. In May, just before Mother’s Day, Necker’s Jewelers devoted a percentage of their sales to raise funds for Family Resources. WQAD ran a news feature on our organization, and Necker’s devoted some of its ad time to the promotion.
Each month, the company selects a different nonprofit in the area to receive a portion of sales. We were the second nonprofit selected. It’s a wonderful program at a time when nonprofits are stretching their resources to the limit.
The gift will go into our annual fund and will be used to provide programs and services that fulfill our mission — to strengthen children, families and individuals by providing quality services that engage community resources to create effective solutions.
Necker’s Jewelers has a history that goes back to 1893, when their first store opened in Dewitt. With the Gift of Giving program, the company shows the care they have for the people of our community.
