The store continues to help raise funds for worthy causes in our town. The Pepperell 4th of July Committee raises funds for the town's firework display and their fundraising merchandise ranges yearly. Help the Pepperell Historical Society restore the old District No. 3 School House with your purchase of hand-drawn note cards, a copy of the Pepperell Reader, the Pepperell Mural DVD or the DVD of the Covered Bridge Grand Opening. Important school band programs will benefit from sales of the cookbook assembled by Pepperell Parents Pro Musica. Several artistic designs of the Pepperell covered bridges are available and a portion of the proceeds on many of these items benefit the Pepperell Covered Bridge and the Prudence Wright Overlook. Volunteers built The Overlook alongside the historic covered bridge to mark the place where a woman patriot, Prudence Wright, courageously defended her bridge and our independence by capturing a British spy during the Revolutionary War.
