ACCESS Women’s Shelter & Fred Martin Auto Group Host The Jewelry Box

Fred Martin Superstore proudly sponsored the The Jewelry Box, a unique fundraising event for ACCESS.  ACCESS, Inc. is a women’s shelter dedicated to addressing the plight of homeless women and children in the Akron area.  The agency encourages the development of self-esteem and the attainment of self-sufficiency through its commitment of providing a holistic, safe and supportive environment, and through its programs of housing, advocacy and empowerment.  Many women come to ACCESS with mental health issues, drug addiction, or are escaping an abusive environment.  Most have children and are in desperate need of housing, healthcare, and a helping hand.  In most cases ACCESS is able to assist these women and their families and get them on a path to success.

The Jewelry Box was held in early November at the Fairlawn DoubleTree and featured over 12,000 pieces of donated jewelry.  All pieces were cleaned by Signet Jewelers and professionally displayed for the public to easily shop.  All costume jewelry was available for $5 per piece, with a separate room for fine jewelry pieces that were donated.

All proceeds from the event benefitted ACCESS and its community commitment to provide a holistic, safe and supportive environment to women and children in its shelter.  Fred Martin Auto Group was honored to be involved with such an amazing event, and an even more incredible organization.
