Local jeweler donates to Cheer Club

Neil Jandron of Jandron’s Fine Jewelry presents two checks to Mining Journal Publisher Ann Troutman. One check is on behalf of Jandron’s Fine Jewelry, and the other is a personal check from Jandron himself. Jandron, a member of the Marquette County Salvation Army Advisory Board, has been a long time supporter of the Cheer Club. “The Cheer Club is a wonderful thing The Mining Journal does. So many children would go without if this event didn’t happen. Seeing how grateful the families are at the distribution centers almost makes you cry,” Jandron said. The Cheer Club, which kicked off Friday, collects unwrapped toys and gifts to be donated to local children and families in need during the holiday season. Gifts are distributed to local families through St. Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army of Marquette County. Gifts can be dropped off at: The Mining Journal office in downtown Marquette; St. Vincent de Paul in Marquette; Range Bank locations in Marquette, Harvey and Negaunee; Salvation Army locations in Ishpeming and Marquette; and Ace Hardware in Gwinn. For those who would like to donate at The Mining Journal office, a donation box is in the vestibule of the office along West Washington Street. Journal staff members are available to take photos of Cheer Club donors who drop off items at The Mining Journal office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
