Cliff’s Local Market and Kelberman Raise Funds for Autism Acceptance

Cliff’s Local Market and Kelberman are joining forces once again for the fourth annual Autism Acceptance and Awareness Campaign, reaffirming their dedication to promoting awareness and fundraising for autism within our local community. Throughout the entire month of October, all Cliff’s Local Market branches will offer symbolic puzzle pieces for sale at their registers, as part of a charitable fundraising initiative benefiting Kelberman. Each puzzle piece purchased directly contributes to the support of local individuals, both children and adults, living with autism, granting them access to essential resources for reaching their fullest potential.

Maria Cappoletti, CEO of Kelberman, expressed her gratitude towards the representatives of Cliff’s Local Market for their partnership and unwavering commitment to assisting families in our community. Cappoletti emphasized the critical role that community partnerships play in sustaining Kelberman's programs and services. She remarked, “Community partnerships are vital to sustaining programs and services at Kelberman.  This commitment to helping children and adults and their families will allow them to connect to life-changing autism services now and for years to come.  Thank you to Cliff’s Local Market and to the Clifford Family for making our friends, neighbors, and family members with autism feel truly supported and celebrated.”   

Jim Clifford, Owner and President of Clifford Fuel Company Inc. and Cliff’s Local Market, expressed his enthusiasm for this year’s fundraising endeavor. He said, “The Clifford team is excited to partner with Kelberman once again this year. We deeply admire the efforts to raise awareness and support for autism. It's truly inspiring to witness the dedication of our store teams and the compassion of our community as they unite to bring about positive change. We eagerly anticipate working together to raise funds for Kelberman's exceptional work.”
