Caring for the Caregiver Jackie’s Chapter
Caring for the Caregiver Jackie’s Chapter is a support organization under the Venango Area Community Foundation. Caring for the Caregiver was created to be a living, active memorial to our beloved Venango County caregiver, Jackie Runge whose life and caring spirit was truly inspirational. Jackie’s Chapter exists to meet the needs of Venango County caregivers by providing funds and other types of support to address their individual and collective needs from the perspective of a “whole” being — physical, emotional and spiritual. The Caregiver Fund is an opportunity for the people of Venango County to contribute to the support of Jackie’s Chapter. The Caregiver Fund will be used to:
- Provide the opportunity for Venango County residents to contribute to the future of and the caring purposes served by Jackie’s Chapter;
- Show community leadership and shared commitment to our caregivers by being there for them in their time of need;
- Enable an expanding number of persons from all walks of life to participate by sharing the concept of Caring for the Caregivers – Jackie’s Chapter;
- Work in cooperation with other agencies and groups which have a kindred purpose and receive, maintain, and accept as assets, any property, whether real, personal or mixed, by way of gift, bequest, devise, or purchase from any person, firm, trust, or corporation to be used for the purposes of Jackie’s Chapter.
