Jewelry Proceeds Benefit Haiti

A jewelry sale at Vol State will benefit the American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti via the campus chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.

“We give ten percent to the school which is donated to the Haiti fund,” said Bob Hutcheson. Hutcheson and wife Rachel are entrepreneurs. “We go to different schools. We are happy to see everyone here,” he said.

Students, staff, and faculty were lining up to see the unique jewelry that the Hutchesons sell. The response was positive when word got out that ten percent of the proceeds will benefit the Haiti

relief fund. “I think it’s a great idea,” said accounting major Emily Maurer.

“I think it is good to give back ten percent of the proceeds to the Haiti relief fund, especially with the large amount of devastation,” said Jarod Moore.

Chris Vaught, Counselor for Retention Support Services said, “I think that it is really cool of them. It’s good to see an independent dealer donating part of the proceeds. You usually expect that from a larger business.”

The jewelry will be on display February 10 and February 11, 2010 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Wood Campus Center.
