Rogers Jewelers donates to WISE

WHAT A GEM: John and Susan Miedema of Rogers Jewelers in downtown Big Rapids found a creative way to help families during the 2012 Christmas season. Beginning in December, Rogers Jewelers sold pairs of genuine cultured pearl earrings for $5 each and donated the entire amount, not just the proceeds, to WISE. “My family and my entire staff are very grateful to this community, which has allowed us to stay in business for so long,” John Miedema said. “This is just a small way for us to be able to help local families this past Christmas. It feels good to be able to help make a difference.” John Miedema recently presented a $500 cash donation to WISE executive director Kelley Samuels.
