We’re Collecting School Supplies for Local Kids – Help Us & Save 10% on Jewelry & Watch Repair!

Back to school season can be exciting, but it can also provoke a lot of anxiety for parents and kids who don’t know how they’ll be able to get the necessary school supplies for the upcoming year. Every student needs to be prepared with notebooks, pencils, erasers, glue sticks, folders, calculators, scissors and more in order to be able to keep up with the rest of the class – but all of these things cost money. The National Retail Federation reports that last year, the average family spent over $600 on clothing and supplies for the coming school year. Not every family can do that. We’re stepping up to help those who can’t, and we’re asking for your help.


We’re working with South County Outreach to help make sure local students are prepared to thrive during the coming school year. Having great supplies matters academically, but it also matters socially. Kids pay a lot of attention to each other, and they notice who has the cool notebooks and who’s trying to make due with the pages left over in an older sibling’s notebook from last year. Your generous donation can really make life easier for a child in need.
We’re collecting all sorts of school supplies right here in our store, The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest. Items needed include:

  • #2 Pencils

  • Pens – Blue, Black & Red

  • Index Cards

  • Highlighters

  • Scissors – Safety Scissors for children

  • Pencil Cases

  • Paper – Plain, Regular Ruled and College Ruled

  • Notebooks – Spiral Bound & Composition Books

  • Rulers

  • Backpacks

  • Binders

  • Glue Sticks

  • Scientific Calculators

  • Dry Erase Markers

  • Pocket Dictionaries

  • And More

We partner with South County Outreach to make sure these supplies get to the students who need them. To say “Thank You” for your support, we’re more than happy to discount all jewelry & watch repair services 10%. If you’ve got a busted bracelet or a ring that needs repair, have our master jewelers fix it for you. All work is done right here in our secure Lake Forest jewelry store and you’ll love being able to wear your jewelry with confidence again!
