Installation of watch batteries benefits tsunami relief efforts


June 6th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Atlantic United Church of Christ recently received a donation from an Atlantic jeweler, to help with tsunami relief efforts in Japan. Rich and Nedra Perry, owners of Geis-Perry Jewelry, presented a check for $1,125, to U-C-C Pastor Nancy Jensen, and church treasurer Marlene Hummel.

The check represents proceeds from the installation of watch batteries at the store, from March 11th…the time of the Tsunami…through Easter, April 25th. The funds will go directly to the Japanese relief efforts through “One great hour of Sharing,” with no administrative costs deducted.
