Jeweler gives bracelets to unemployed [Video]

with one comment

I am a little late on this one, but it was just brought to my attention. This business owner deserves a pat on the back for giving a little peace of mind to people in his community.

Prisha Muzyka said she’s a victim of the recession. She said she has lost her job and her house.

“I lost it in October and have not found work since,” Muzyka said.

Stan Shelley owns Shelley’s Jewelry in Hendersonville.

 

He said he decided to give away Sterling silver heart bracelets to the first 50 people who came in who have lost their job or their home.

 

“I figured if they lost their job, they’re not going to have a Valentine’s gift,” Shelley said. “If they’re a man, they’re not going to buy one. If they’re a lady, they’re not going to get one. So we’re providing a Valentine’s gift for those people.”

One little boy was 9 years old,” Shelley said. “He had his grandmother bring him in so he could get the bracelet for his mother who’s out of work.”
