Hi-Ho Silver LOVES Giving Back to the Community

Hi-Ho Silver’s company vision is to provide Sterling Service to Our Customers and Community. Giving back to our communities through charitable donations keeps us in touch with what is important… our customers, our staff and our community. If you are holding a fundraiser or event, please contact the store manager nearest you and they will be glad to help out in some way! Each of our locations gives back to their local community monthly. Below are some major events we’ve recently taken part in.
Relay for Life
At the end of May 2011, Hi-Ho Silver held a two week long in-store promotion for the local Relay for Life organization. Relay for Life helps to gain funds to help fight for the cure to cancer and celebrate and remember the lives lost and the ones still fighting. Customers were asked to round up their purchase as a donation to the cause. By the end of the promotion, we raised $300 and Hi-Ho Silver matched it for a total of $600 donated! We can’t wait to be more involved this year and raise more!

Fairy Godmothers of Virginia
In February 2011, Hi-Ho Silver held an in-store event for the Fairy Godmothers of Virginia. This organization helps to provide a special high school prom experience for qualified girls whose financial situations would preclude their ability to attend their prom. As a drop off location, Hi-Ho Silver collected 125 dresses, 18 shoes, 13 bags and 31 pieces of jewelry to donate to the 2011 Prom Fair where a few employees volunteered! Thank you to all of our amazing customers and employees who contributed to this wonderful organization!

Sarah Bonwell Hudgins Foundation
Hi-Ho Silver helps to run an Annual Bunco Tournament for the Sarah Bonwell Hudgins Foundation. All proceeds go to this wonderful organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with mental and/or physical disabilities.

Food Bank of the Virginia Peninsula
Our canned food drive in November 2010 turned out to be a great success! Every so often, Hi-Ho Silver tries to donate to the local foodbanks and increase the amount of food they have in stock. This event asked customers to bring in non-perishable food items and receive 25% off your total purchase. It resulted in an overwhelming donation of 696 pounds of food from our incredible customers!

Dream Catchers of Williamsburg
Our Williamsburg store holds events and donates a percentage of profits to the Dream Catchers of Williamsburg. This organization is at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center which holds over 110 horse riding lessons each week to help children and adults with special-needs reach their potential. Our Williamsburg store carries a special collection of equestrian sterling silver jewelry especially for this group. Our giveback events for the Dream Catchers brings a good amount of funding to the association.

Peninsula Fine Arts Center
In 2007, we sold the Nancy Thomas Cookbooks during the holiday season for the Peninsula Fine Arts Center. We sold a total of $3,500 and all of that was donated back to the PFAC, the premier arts advocate in the region working to create a stronger community through ART.?
