Forevermark and Local Jewelers Give Back to Fairfield County Community
As part of its commitment to giving back to the communities in which it operates, Forevermark recently hosted its second annual day of service in Fairfield County, Conn. Bringing together Forevermark employees and staff from David Harvey Jewelers, J. Albert Johnson Jewelers, and Nagi Jewelers (all Forevermark authorized jewelers), the team of 30 volunteers joined with environmental education nonprofit SoundWaters to clean up Stamford’s Cove Island Park, collecting 135 pounds of trash in the process.
“Our passion for diamonds is matched by our deep sense of connection with the natural world,” said Forevermark US president Charles Stanley, in a press release. “By working together with our local Fairfield County jewelers and our staff to clean our waterfront, we are able to preserve Long Island Sound for future generations.”
