For a low price of $5.00, you can replace your old watch battery with a brand new one at Ustinov Jewelers in Dartmouth, MA. to help a shelter in your community.

So what's the big deal? Well... ALL proceeds get donated to the Sister Rose Homeless Shelter in New Bedford.

For the past 6-7 years, Ustinov has been replacing and fixing watch batteries year-round for zero profit, only asking for a $5 donation to be sent to Sister Rose's.

What started off as a food drive turned into an average of $800-$900 donated a year to help out the shelter.

The Ustinov Family has been collecting watch batteries for over 37 years and collects them in vases and jars. They recommend that you change out at least once a year.

There is no limit on how many batteries you wish to change out and the store fixes your watch right there in front of you while you wait... No appointment needed.
