Special event to support Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society set for May 6.

Gloucester, Va. – In honor of its 25th Anniversary of business in Gloucester, Kelsick Specialty Market is pleased to announce the launch of the Kelsick KICK BACK Program.

“The community has given Kelsick Specialty Market so much over the years, and supported us in ways that have allowed us to be successful,” said Beth Haskell, founder and owner of Kelsick Specialty Market. “As we look forward to celebrating our 25th Anniversary this fall, we wanted to find a way to say thank you that was meaningful to the community.”

For the Kelsick KICK BACK Program, each month, through the fall, Kelsick Specialty Market has selected an organization in the Gloucester community to support through a portion of sales as well as offering the market as a place for the selected charity to do additional fundraising.
April 2017 kicked off with support to The Samaritan Group, Inc. and the Samaritans setting up donation jars in the market, which customers have readily contributed to.

The Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society will be supported in May, Haskell said. Throughout May, the Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society will post cutout photos of shelter animals throughout the market and on May 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. will be on site at the market with shelter dogs available for adoption.

Kelsick Specialty Market will have its smoker fired up on May 6, too. Customers are encouraged to come by and donate to the shelter, both monetarily and with food for the animals.

Later this year, Kelsick Specialty Market will support the Gloucester-Mathews Care Clinic, the Gloucester Library’s Haskell Endowment Fund, the Laurel Shelter, Botetourt Elementary School and VersAbility.
