Press Release (ePRNews.com) - COLUMBUS, Ga. - Jun 14, 2017 - CARE PACKAGE ‘PACK-OUT’ WITH OPERATION TROOP AID®
Join Harris Jewelry™ on Saturday, June 17th, at 10:00AM, for a special GRAND OPENING Event!
Operation Troop Aid® will be on site with donated goods and will need your help to package them up and ship 200 Care Packages to a deployed unit! Stop by and support this great cause!
Harris is not your typical jewelry store! Each Harris Jewelry™ store is proudly decorated with memorabilia and photographs honoring the bases and units from the communities it serves. Many have described their stores as a cross between a jewelry store and a military museum. Their ‘Fort Benning collection’ includes interesting pieces – from WWII to present – including a Blackhawk helicopter ‘flying’ in the middle of the store and a ‘Teddy Bear Training Tower‘ promoting Operation Troop Aid® (CFC#26493). Feel free just to stop by and look – they don’t charge admission!
In 2012, Harris began a new program called Operation: Teddy Bear®. Its purpose was to provide care packages for service members overseas through the sale of uniformed teddy bears. Their campaign has already raised over $875,000, which has been donated to support the military assistance charity, Operation Troop Aid®. And from June 16-18, for every military teddy bear sold at Harris Jewelry’s Fort Benning Exchange location, the company will double its donation to Operation Troop Aid®!

Harris Jewelry™ was founded in 1955 by Jerome L. Harris, a Marine and World War II Veteran. It was his belief that U.S. Military Service Personnel were entitled to purchase jewelry at a store specifically created for their needs. Harris Jewelry™ continues his mission today by offering military communities quality jewelry and watches while providing exceptional customer service.
For over 60 years, the Harris Family has been proud to give back to the communities they serve through charitable donations, including sponsorship of troop recognition programs at many installations across the United States.
Harris Jewelry™ operates 25 stores nationwide.
