CHAVEZ FOR CHARITY HOSTS “MAKE YOUR OWN BRACELET DAY”

Chavez for Charity Visits SJCHChavez for Charity (CfC) co-founders, Julie Marie Chavez and Joe Cerbo, along with several members of their team, paid a visit to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. The Verona-based company, best known for its colored bracelets that support 20 different charities, organized a “Make Your Own Bracelet Day” at the hospital to help raise the spirits of children currently receiving care.

“It’s important that we not only donate money, but that we donate our time as well. So when our social media manager, Sara, came to us with this opportunity, we immediately said let’s do it. As we continue to grow, we will be looking for more ways to be hands on,” says Julie.

The children had a wonderful time making their own bracelets. Many of them wanted to make bracelets for Mother’s Day, while a number of young boys designed bracelets to match the colors of their favorite sports teams.

While several of the children in the intensive care unit were unable to leave their beds to participate, CfC’s staff was allowed to visit each child individually to help them create a bracelet based on their favorite colors.

In addition to the bracelets that were made on-site at St. Joseph’s, Chavez for Charity presented the children with an additional 50 bracelets from their Kids’ Collection. The St. Joseph’s staff that helped coordinate the event were presented with bracelets as well.

St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is currently participating in a CfC initiative called the 11th Bracelet Project that gives retailers the opportunity to choose a charity they would like to contribute to.

Chavez for Charity has a second visit with St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital scheduled for mid-June. The company intends to host more “Make Your Own Bracelet Day” events at the hospital on a regular basis.
