In 2007, Pat Minnite Sr. started the Spirit of Giving Fund to support local charities and nonprofit organizations around the holidays. The community has enthusiastically joined in the charitable efforts to give back to the organizations that make a difference in the Mid-Ohio Valley.
Tenants, business associates, vendors, and friends of The PM Company (PMC) raised $61,000 to be given to selected local charities. For 2021, PMC matched up to $60,000 donated to the Fund. Thanks to the community’s generous support, a total of $121,000 will be evenly distributed to thirteen area charities.
These charities were selected through an application process by representatives of the PMC. The Spirit of Giving Fund is managed by the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation (PACF), which will distribute the funds accordingly. Each charity listed below will receive $9,300 to support their work within the community:
