Bailey’s Fine Jewelry’s A Time to Give Program Raises More Than $41,000 for Community in 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (Jan. 17, 2013) – Bailey’s Fine Jewelry donated more than $41,000 to charities in 2012 through the A Time to Give program, raising the most funds in the program’s history. 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 designated 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’s needs, as well as its impeccable customer service. This unique approach to philanthropy 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 $141,000 back to the communities where Bailey’s stores are located (Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Greenville and Fayetteville).

Bailey’s is a store steeped in family tradition that strives to bring a fun-loving approach to the jewelry business.

“Our family is so blessed to be able to work and live in such great communities. We are so fortunate to be able to give back to them,” said Doug Morgan, a family member and director of development at Bailey’s Fine Jewelry.  “It’s one of the best parts of my job.”

In 2012, A Time to Give donated to various North Carolina charities as diverse as: Raleigh Rescue Mission, the Salvation Army, Urban Ministries, Duke Children’s Hospital, Relay for Life, the Autism Society, Kids Peace, Wounded Warrior, Stroke of Faith and Operation Christmas Child.
