Here at Neat Nick Preserves, we have strong connections to our local community, which is why shortly after we launched we decided to donate a dollar from every jar of preserves purchased during March and April to benefit the Ellicott City Partnership (ECP).
Founded in 2013, the ECP is a 501(c)3 organization located in Ellicott City, MD. It’s mission? To preserve the heritage and vitality of Historic Ellicott City while enhancing and creating economic growth.
And thus Preserves for Preservation was born!
We’re excited to report that friends and fans bought 435 jars of preserves during this event, which means we’ll be donating $435 to ECP!
In the words of Maureen Sweeney Smith, ECP Executive Director, “Ellicott City Partnership is thrilled to receive this donation from Neat Nick Preserves and plans to use the funds as part of the matching portion for a future Maryland Preservation Grant. Possible projects include a bronze plaque with interpretative signage for the the National Road Ten Mile Marker under the train bridge or replacing the flood level marker – attached to the bridge – which washed away in the July 30 flood.”
Friends and fans inspired to donate to support ECP, please click here with our thanks! It’s a wonderful organization doing great things for the community we call home.
