Fairfield Police Foundation and the Fairfield Police Department Launch Fairfield Cares for Small Bus
Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Foundation, a recognized 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, through its Fairfield Business Network, has partnered with the Fairfield Police Department’s Community Services Unit in order to launch the Fairfield Cares about Small Businesses initiative.
This initiative provides an avenue for Fairfield’s small businesses to be highlighted to our community and those customers they serve on a single website maintained by the police foundation. Then, if members of the public feel so inclined to help, they can donate directly to that business by clicking on the business’ image which will take them directly to that business’ specific “GoFundMe page.
“As local small businesses continue to struggle to keep their doors open, with potentially no end in sight, both the police foundation’s board of directors and the police department felt we could do more to try and assure that our businesses survive this economic downturn which will ultimately benefit our whole community by keeping it strong and viable” said Dr. Michael Sapienza, president of the Fairfield Police Foundation and also a Fairfield resident and Fairfield small business owner.
“Throughout the years, so many of our local businesses have supported Fairfield police, recreation, school and municipal alliance events with food or monetary donations. Now seems like the perfect time for us to try and help them when they need us most” said Chief Anthony G. Manna.
At present, there are five businesses on the site, the Franklin Steakhouse, Prime 94, Michaelangelos restaurant, Sidelines, and Il Classico deli but we are encouraging other Fairfield small businesses that are in need to join it as well. There are no fees for doing so and all money collected goes directly to the business that was donated to.
