Caring and Sharing – Two Very Good Things

 Patterned Agate & Onyx Bracelet

Did you know that with every item you buy from Tanya Lochridge Jewelry, we make a donation to your local food bank? Yes, ten percent of the full price of your item or items is donated directly to the food bank you list in the Special Request area in your Tanya Lochridge Jewelry Shopping cart.


Just take a few minutes to list the name and complete phone number of the food bank so we can call to confirm a current mailing address. Donations are sent on the last day of the month in which you place your order.

This snapshot of the shopping cart on the site/shop shows you where to list your local food bank information.

Why? 

Food insecurity is a serious issue in the United States. 2012 statistics show that 49 million Americans lived in food insecure households – 33.1 million adults and 15.9 million children. Every contribution helps, no matter the size – with that in mind, we are doing what we can to help ensure that people have access to food where they live and whenever they need it. So, thanks so much for caring and for your gift.

P.S. If you are not in the market for jewelry today – why not let this be a reminder to drop off some food items the next time you drive or walk past your local food bank. Also, many local businesses provide drop-off stations making it easier for you to help out when you go to the bank, the pharmacy or the hairdresser.
