We are so proud to announce that thanks to the support of our incredible customers, Kelsick Market donated this week $400 to The Samaritan Group, Inc., marking the first Kelsick Kick Back program check presentation of the year!
The best part? That total didn’t include the donations our customers made in the market directly throughout the month of April.
Over the last 25 years, this community has given Kelsick Specialty Market so much.
As part of our anniversary celebration, we decided to KICK BACK to the community in a big way!
Each month, through the fall, we have selected an organization in our community to support through a portion of our sales.
In April 2017 we selected The Samaritan Group, Inc.!
What do they do? They proudly help people help others.
Specifically, The Samaritan Group, Inc. (SGI) provides funds for families who are seeking temporary financial assistance. SGI has provided more than $1 million to more than 3,000 families since it was organized in 1991.
Founded in 1991 by citizens and business leaders in Gloucester County, SGI is designed to provide financial assistance for families in temporary need. People served must be a resident of Gloucester County and have been so for a minimum of 12 months. Assistance is only be granted once within a 12 month period.
They are able to do their mission thanks to fundraisers (just like this one!), churches, United Way designations, civic groups, individuals memorials and The Daily Press Holiday Fund.
The group is run by a Board of Directors, which includes 17 volunteers and 2 caseworkers.
