NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS
We at James Avery care deeply about the many people impacted by the tragedy in the town of West, Texas. Our prayers are with the victims and their families. In addition, we have provided aid to the people of West through recent donations of $30,000 to the American Red Cross and $20,000 to the West Fire Department.
In our recently distributed Mother's Day catalog James Avery introduced new “Marathon Charms.” We illustrated the option to personalize this product with engraving and used the iconic Boston Marathon event as an example by engraving “Boston 2013” on the product. This catalog was printed in March and released for distribution just prior to the tragic event that occurred at this year’s Boston Marathon. We are deeply moved by this event and our prayers are with the victims and their families.
Through a recent donation of $30,000, James Avery is a proud sponsor of The One Fund Boston, Inc. which was organized to raise money to help those families most affected by the tragic events that unfolded during the 2013 Boston Marathon. We encourage our friends and loyal customers to learn more about the fund and consider contributing to the fund at OneFundBoston.org.
