LOCK HAVEN – On Jan. 13, Pennsylvania Skill Charitable Donations donated $5,000 to the Michael Brookens, Todd Mellott and Michael Gardner Memorial Fund, an endowment fund of the Clinton County Community Foundation.
This is the second donation the Memorial Fund has received from Pennsylvania Skill Charitable Donations, with the first donation being $2,500 in 2019.
Established in 2017 by Jim Akeley, Kelli Gardner and Cheryl Seddon, this fund is designed to honor three men who were not only close friends but also good stewards in their communities.

“These three men have given back to the community in many ways. They will be missed terribly and we are honored to carry their names forever.” according to a press release from Pennsylvania Skill Charitable Donations.
