Richard Schmidt Jewelry in La Grange donated $20,000 to the La Grange Area Disaster Recovery Team on Tuesday, Jan. 2.

The money came from sales of 200 special necklaces designed and made by Schmidt Jewelry for the flood recovery effort.

“We thought it would be nice if we sold 50 of them,” said Janet Schmidt, store co-owner. “We took pictures and put them on Instagram and three seconds later the phone was ringing off hook.”
