Local jewelers help clean up Cove Island Park
Updated 4:18 pm, Wednesday, October 19, 2016
Over 40 volunteers from Forevermark US and staff from four Fairfield County Forevermark-authorized jewelers partnered with SoundWaters, an educational, environmental non-profit, to clean up Cove Island Park in Stamford. On Sunday, Oct. 16, volunteers took action to protect their local watershed, cleaning up litter along the waterline and through the park — a total of 32 bags containing 246 pounds of trash.
Forevermark, the global diamond brand from The De Beers Group, has its U.S. headquarters in Stamford. Besides volunteers from there, employees from Craig’s Fine Jewelry in Ridgefield, David Harvey Jewelers in Darien and Norwalk, J. Albert Johnson Jewelers in Fairfield, and Nagi Jewelers in Stamford participated.
Besides volunteering time, three Forevermark-affiliated jewelers will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from purchases made on Wednesday evening, Oct. 19 to SoundWaters. From 6-9 p.m., purchases made at Lux Bond & Green, 136 Main St., Westport; J. Albert Johnson, 1957 Black Rock Turnpike, Fairfield; and David Harvey Jewelers, 995 Post Road, Darien, will go to the non-profit. Attendees at “Forevermark’s Night Out” can enjoy drinks, light bites and complimentary pampering.
