Dickinson Jewelers Reaches Out to the Community During October

by Oct 10, 2012

The food drive … is a great way to shine light on October representing End Hunger Month in Calvert County

At Dickinson Jewelers, One Pound of Food Equals One Dollar for the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care.
For every pound of food that is collected in their stores for End Hunger in Calvert County, Dickinson Jewelers in Dunkirk and Prince Frederick will donate $1 to the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care at Calvert Memorial Hospital. The food drive for canned or non-perishable food items will take place in both store locations through the end of October.
The food drive and donation to the center is a great way to shine light on October representing End Hunger Month in Calvert County and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “This month embodies two very important causes. We always try to find different ways to reach out to the community we live and work in and I think this is something we can all be proud to be a part of,” said Claude Dickinson, owner of Dickinson Jewelers.
Food donations will go to End Hunger in Calvert County (EHCC) www.endhungercalvert.org. This will be the second partnership between the jewelry store and End Hunger. The first food drive at the stores brought in over 1,600 pounds of food.
A dollar for every pound of food collected will benefit the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care at Calvert Memorial Hospital www.calverthospital.org. This center is the first of its kind in Southern Maryland and gives women access to an experienced team of breast health experts and the most sophisticated technology available today. The jewelry store will also be selling ceramic pink ribbon rings for a special price of $25 during the month of October, donating $10 of each purchase to the Center for Breast Care throughout October.
Dickinson Jewelers is located in Prince Frederick at 916 Costley Way and in Dunkirk at 10286 Southern Maryland Boulevard. Store hours at both locations are Mon-Fri 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sat 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
