In an effort to help make the holidays brighter for those in need, Altemueller Jewelry, Washington, will host a benefit for Loving Hearts Outreach.

While supplies last, customers can purchase a pair of white freshwater pearl earrings, normally $15.95, for $5. All proceeds from the sale of the earrings will go to Loving Hearts.

“Loving Hearts is a fantastic charity in Washington,” said Mark Noelke, co-owner, adding that the earrings would make a good Christmas gift for friends or family.

“Christmas is our busiest time of the year, and it’s a time to look out for others as well,” he said.

There is a limit of one pair per customer. The sale was set to run through Christmas, however, on Thursday — the second day of the sale — nearly 40 pairs had been sold.

Noelke said he is considering ordering more inventory if the rest of the earrings sell well.
