Posted

Cliff’s Local Market was recently recognized for partnering with Kelberman for their autism puzzle piece campaign that helped raise $30,000 for autism services from Oct. 17 through Nov. 14.

The sale of puzzle pieces within Cliff’s stores will help ensure that children, adults, and their families in the community receive quality autism services now, and into the future.  

“We couldn’t be more grateful and proud of our store teams for truly embracing our campaign to support individuals with autism. With the help of our generous patrons and support from Kelberman, our teams raised a record amount,” said Jim Clifford, owner and president of Clifford Fuel Co Inc. and Cliff’s Local Market. “It’s local initiatives such as this, that bring our communities together. We take pride in our partnership with Kelberman, showing our support and appreciation for the amazing work they do for so many families right here in Central New York.”   

Tara Costello, Kelberman executive director, said the center is “overjoyed at the tremendous support” received from Cliff’s Local Market and from the community.

“The funding that was raised is an extremely significant gift for our agency that will be felt throughout, ensuring that autism services for people and families who need them will continue,” Costello said.

The expert staff at Kelberman empower people with specialized, one-of-a-kind programs, resources, support, and wrap-around services, creating a fulfilling, life-enriching experience for people and families,” the announcement adds.
