After a year of collecting donations, dollar by dollar, JMX Brands, a Sarasota-based specialty online retailer, has donated $677 in Christmas gifts to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast.
During each company staff meeting, JMX Brands employees honor co-workers who work above and beyond expectations by donating a dollar and a compliment to the “kudos” box. The money collected is matched by the company’s owners and contributed to a local charity each year. In the past, JMX Brands has given to All Faiths Food Bank. Big Brothers Big Sisters was selected for this year’s donation.
Even though JMX Brands sells Amish furniture and other quality-made products throughout the country, mainly through its flagship website www.DutchCrafters.com, the local community is very important to the company and donating to a local charity is one way of giving back.
As a continued commitment to its local customers, JMX Brands opened a DutchCrafters furniture store this year at 3709 N. Lockwood Ridge Road in Sarasota. The 3,500-square-foot store showcases popular Amish furniture and provides the opportunity to speak in person with a furniture specialist and compare wood finish and fabric samples.
