Letter: Thanks to a leader on Main Street
The Fairfield Foundation would like to extend its many thanks to the ownership and staff of Jessica’s On Main restaurant for choosing our foundation as a recipient of one of the restaurant’s Community Benefit Days.
On Tuesday, March 19, Jessica’s On Main donated 25 percent of its proceeds to our nonprofit organization. The Fairfield Foundation has been blessed with continued support from the Gloucester community, and from the Main Street businesses in particular, during our development of a center for historic preservation and education at the Edge Hill Service Station. The Community Benefit Days at Jessica’s On Main are a perfect example of innovative outreach by small businesses, and Jessica’s is to be commended for its efforts to engage the community in unique events which support local nonprofit organizations like ours.
Melissa and her staff at Jessica’s Sweet Shop and Jessica’s On Main have been nothing but courteous, friendly and enthusiastic in every instance of involvement with The Fairfield Foundation—and let’s not forget to mention the fabulous baked goods that they offer! We at The Fairfield Foundation cannot thank Jessica’s On Main enough for its support, both through this event and with three consecutive years of our Gloucester Fall History Crawl, and we cannot wait to continue collaborating with them in the future. They are a leader on Main Street and a benefit to us all.
