The 2nd annual Freedom Run 5K is set for Thursday, August 7th in East Moline, but Necker's isnt' waiting until then to help out.

The jewelry store is donating a portion of all sales from its DeWitt and Davenport locations to the run to help benefit the USO and The Association of the United States Army.
