Former resident of Venango County, Jeff Millay, recently donated $5,000 on behalf of Pennsylvania Skill Charitable Giving to the United Way of Venango County. Originally a resident of Pleasantville, Millay now resides in Loyalsock and is the Director of Sales and Services with Pennsylvania Skill and Miele Manufacturing.
Philanthropy is part of Millay’s core values as he grew up watching his mother, Bonnie Caldwell, formerly of Pleasantville and Townville, taking care of patients through the Hospice Care of Venango County nonprofit for many years.
“My mother took care of members of the community and found ways to provide comfort to families during difficult times of their lives — it was inspiring and shaped the person I am today.” Millay said. “My mother showed me the importance of giving back to the community and I’m grateful that through Pennsylvania Skill Charitable Giving we could make a donation to the United Way of Venango County.”
The grant from Pennsylvania Skill Charitable Giving will be used to purchase M.A.P.S., a business management and reporting software that is commonly used among nonprofit organizations. This tool will be used to help with data collection for meal and grocery distribution to serve their community more efficiently as they are helping more community members.
The United Ways identifies the most critical health, education, and income needs for its residents and creates innovative solutions to lead to a stronger and more resilient community. The Venango County branch supports community partners and programs such as career counseling, social work, school care closets, and much more.
