Jewelry store gives back in a big way to charities


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A local jewelry store gives back in a big way.

During the holiday season, customers at Ross Elliott jewelers got to pick a charity to give to.

The jewelry store then donated to that charity at the end of the season.

After all said and done, the store donated more than $20,000.

Owner Bill Elliott says this was a great alternative to a holiday giveaway.

“We had one charity that we had heard wasn’t doing that well with the Christmas season, and they were one of the top picks,” Elliott said. “And when they came in to get their check, they mentioned the fact that they didn’t have a great season but that this helped bring it almost even. So, we were thrilled.”
