Kelsick Specialty Market right here on Gloucester Main Street said it perfectly: “one of the incredible things about living and doing business in Gloucester is the kindness of the people here. So kind, in fact, that our community is filled with countless organizations that’s sole mission is to help others.”

This year, just as they did last year, Kelsick Specialty Market asked their customers and this community to help them pick which charities to support throughout 2019.

The top charities nominated and voted on in a Facebook poll have become the groups that Kelsick Specialty Market will help promote in the market, make a monetary donation to and help them do more of their good works!
