Bailey’s Fine Jewelry’s A Time to Give Program Raises Nearly $30,000 for the Community

RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 9, 2011) – Bailey’s Fine Jewelry donated nearly $30,000 to charities in 2010 through the A Time to Give program.  A Time to Give was created by the Bailey family as a way to support and give back to the community, while providing watch battery replacements to patrons.

A Time to Give provides a free replacement for any watch battery and in exchange requests a donation be made to that month’s charity. Bailey’s selects a different non-profit organization each month to receive all the donations from A Time to Give.

A Time to Give is unique because it demonstrates Bailey’s dedication to serve the community, as well as its impeccable customer service. Bailey’s is a store steeped in family tradition that strives to bring a fun-loving approach to the jewelry business. A Time to Give allows Bailey’s to show patrons and the community its dedication to serving and giving back.

Since its inception in 2008, A Time to Give has donated more than $100,000 back to the communities where Bailey’s stores are located (Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Greenville and Fayetteville).

“Our family feels honored to be able to give back to the communities that we live in and love,” said Doug Morgan, a family member and director of development at Bailey’s Fine Jewelry.  “It’s one of the most rewarding parts of what we do.”

In 2010, A Time to Give donated nearly $30,000 to various North Carolina charities as diverse as: Women for Women, Kay Yow Endowment Fund, Interact, Duke Children’s Hospital, Hearts Revived, Nash Community College, Tar River Missions Clinic, Prevent Child Abuse America (Kappa Delta of ECU), Boys & Girls Club of Wake County and Nash/Edgecombe Counties, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Tri-County Industries, Inter-Faith Food Shutter, Communities in Schools, American Red Cross, Multiple Sclerosis, StepUp Ministries, Hospice of Wake County, American Red Cross, The Nash/Edgecombe Humane Society, N.C.
