Jewelers Bench Harvey Relief Fund

My name is Rick Simmons. I'm a hand engraver and metalsmith from New Orleans, LA, a transplant from Hurricane Katrina. I have been doing engraving work and various other projects with my friends at the Jewelers Bench for nearly 12 years. They took me in like family after evacuating to Houston from New Orleans. Jewelers Bench has been in business since 1983 serving the Kingwood community with all of their jewelry needs. Like many businesses in our area, Hurricane Harvey, totally devastated this local family business. Please donate to help three brothers, Tony, Mike and Scott Aalund, put the pieces back together. Taking on over 3 feet of water, they lost everything but the jewelry itself, so relief proceeds will go towards replacing showroom cases, laser welder, benches, microscopes, computers and various other tools lost to Hurricane Harvey.
Thank you very much,
~Rick Simmons
