Reeds Jewelers would like to thank everyone who donated or participated in Summit Educational Resources Autism Awareness Walk this past Saturday! The fundraising goal of $250,000 for Summit Educational Resources was well surpassed and we could not have done this without all of the generous people of Western NY’s support! Over 3,000 people attended this years walk making this year the largest Autism Awareness Walk in Summit’s history!
Over 1,500 local families and children will benefit from this years tremendous fundraising efforts. Jeff Zimmer of Reeds Jewelers and Duane Paddock of Paddock Chevrolet were co-chairs for this years walk and could not be happier with the positive and overwhelming response from the community.
“Both Jeff[Zimmer] and I believe… it’s not what a business takes out of it’s community that defines a business, it’s really what it gives back to the community… we need to be here for organizations like this.” -Duane Paddock
