ALBANY, N.Y. – Northeastern Fine Jewelry invites customers to give a loved one the gift of time while benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Albany and Schenectady this holiday season.

For every LEGO watch purchased at the Albany and Schenectady store locations, Northeastern Fine Jewelry will donate a LEGO watch to the corresponding Boys & Girls Club branches in Albany and Schenectady. The watches will be distributed to children in need served by the non-profit organizations.

Designed with young children in mind, LEGO watches are crafted to aid children in learning to tell time from an analog clock. The watches are colorful and feature a simple buckle. LEGO brand watches are available for $25 at Northeastern Fine Jewelry locations.

“During the holiday season, it is important for us all to give back to our communities. LEGO watches are widely popular, yet practical gifts that can be put to great use,” said Northeastern Fine Jewelry President Ray Bleser. “We look forward to supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs by providing kids with a new twist on a classic toy for the holidays.”

The buy-one, give-one LEGO watch program at the Northeastern Fine Jewelry store locations in Albany and Schenectady is available through December 21.
