Day's Jewelers proudly presented a $5,000 grant from Jewelers for Children (JFC) to Camp Sunshine on September 21 at Day's Jewelers in Augusta. Camp Sunshine is an organization dedicated to helping children cope with serious illnesses along with their families. JFC, a non-profit organization founded by the jewelry industry in 1999 is dedicated to helping children in need. More than 20,000 people across America were motivated to vote for their favorite, local charity. Day's Jewelers worked in conjunction with Camp Sunshine to encourage people to vote. When the final tallies were reported, Camp Sunshine earned a spot in the top 10 winning the $5,000 grant.

Day's Augusta Store Manager Valentin (LT) Sierra, describes Camp Sunshine and their works. "One of the great things of working for a family owned company like Day's is the fact that we dedicate time and money to give back to the communities. Camp Sunshine, based in Casco Maine, is a wonderful organization that provides respite and promotes hope to children with life-threatening illnesses to their families. It is a beautiful thing they give these children and their families and Day's is overjoyed to be a part of this."

"We believe that jewelry should go "Beyond Beauty," and help to make the world a better place. Camp Sunshine is an oasis for families who are going through more than most of us could ever imagine. The energy and smiles of all the volunteers, families and kids when you walk through those doors is why we continue to nominate Camp Sunshine year after year. Iam proud to say that this is our fourth year in a row nominating, and winning this grant for Camp Sunshine totaling $35,000. Thank you to our customers, vendors, friends and family who voted and helped make this possible!" Stated Marketing Director, Hannah Duguie.
