Hamilton Jewelers donates to Trenton-based HomeFront

PRINCETON, December 4, 2014: 

The holidays can be challenging for those in need and many families in Mercer County need assistance to hope for a brighter future.  Hamilton Jewelers recently represented one of their company’s core values of “community support” with an important donation to HomeFront.  

HomeFront's mission is to end homelessness in Central New Jersey by harnessing the caring, resources and expertise of the community and therefore lessen the immediate pain of homelessness.  The organization helps families become self-sufficient through such efforts as emergency food, free clothing and household goods, affordable housing searches, job placement and readiness skills.

Hamilton hosted a special event in partnership with international designer David Yurman on November 6th in their downtown Princeton location.  A portion of proceeds from the evening was reserved for a donation to HomeFront, resulting in a donation amount of $7,791.  A check for this amount was presented this week by Hank and Lisette Siegel to Connie Mercer, founder of HomeFront, in their Trenton office.

“We are proud to support such an important and worthwhile organization in Mercer County,” says Hamilton president Hank B. Siegel.  “My grandfather started our company in downtown Trenton over 100 years ago, and it’s important to my family that we always support this community.  We believe strongly in assisting locally, particularly to organizations that help families in need.”

Hamilton Jewelers is a family-owned and operated firm with locations in Princeton and Palm Beach, FL.  Since 1912, Hamilton has provided successive generations of families and friends with impeccable service, value, and selection.  All items are responsibly sourced with care for our environment and our communities.
