Ben David Jewelers to Donate a Portion of June Sales to God’s Storehouse
Throughout the month of June, Ben David Jewelers will donate a portion of the proceeds of everything sold to benefit our local food bank, God’s Storehouse, as part of the Governor’s Bowl – Chamber Challenge food and fund drive campaign.
Ben David Jewelers owner Mark David says his team feels strongly about giving back to the community and are excited to involve their customers in contributing to the local families that God’s Storehouse serves. Mark David adds, “God’s Storehouse is doing great work in our community and we are so excited to partner with them, Governor McDonnell, and the Danville Chamber of Commerce. So many families in the Danville area are struggling to find jobs and have to wonder every day how they will put food on the table. We want to rally our team and customers to do all we can to help with this basic need.”
Governor Bob McDonnell announced the Governor’s Bowl – Chamber Challenge food and fund drive campaign which began on May 28, 2012 and will end on July 4, 2012. During this period, Chambers of Commerce and State Offices across Virginia will raise food and funds to be donated to their local food banks. The Chamber office that collects the most donations will receive the coveted “Governor’s Bowl” to be delivered by Governor McDonnell. The majority of proceeds that will be raised by the Danville Chamber of Commerce will benefit God’s Storehouse in Danville.
God’s Storehouse is a non-profit food pantry that was founded in 1987 by a group of local pastors and continues to be supported by over 100 churches in our community. Their mission is to distribute food to people in need in Danville and Pittsylvania County.
Ben David Jewelers is a second-generation jewelry store in located in Danville, VA, and owned by brothers Mark and Leon David. This family-owned store has been operating in Danville since 1959.
