RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 18, 2014) – Bailey’s Fine Jewelry donated more than $42,000 for local charities in 2013 through the jeweler’s 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 give back to the local community, while providing watch battery replacements to patrons.
A Time to Give provides customers with a complimentary watch battery replacement and in exchange requests a donation be made to that month’s designated charity. Each month Bailey’s selects a different non-profit organization to receive the donations from A Time to Give.
Since its inception in 2008, Bailey’s has donated more than $185,000 to the communities where Bailey’s stores are located (Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Greenville and Fayetteville) through A Time to Give. This program is one of the unique ways in which Bailey’s demonstrates its dedication to serve the surrounding community, as well as providing a service to its patrons. 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 live and work in such wonderful communities and it’s an honor 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 definitely one of the best parts of my job.”
In 2013, A Time to Give donated to various North Carolina charities including Duke Children’s Hospital, Stop Hunger Now, Relay for Life, March of Dimes, Hospice and Palliative Care of Nash General Hospital, Camp Trinity, Hope of Glories Ministries, Habitat for Humanity, Avent West Mentoring, World Vision, Theatre Raleigh, Nash Community College, Operation in as Much, Prevent Child Abuse America, Ronald McDonald House, Young Life, Special Olympics, Salvation Army and Operation Christmas Child.
