Donald Donagher donated money to charities that help kids in need, homeless and animal shelters and more this year.
Donald Donagher, the CEO of Penn Credit in Harrisburg, Penn., continued his
giving spirit for local and national charities this year.
Donagher recently donated $5,800 to the Titusville Fire Department
in Titusville, Fla., to contribute to their support of North Brevard
Charities, which helps low income, homeless and other people in need.
The fire department used the donation to purchase toys, bikes and other
items to donate to North Brevard Charities.
Donagher visited Titusville in 2014 and 2015 to deliver his donations and
help the fire department shop and deliver packages, he said.
He also made donations to homeless shelters, animal shelters, local food
banks and other charities during his visit this year.
Titusville Fire Chief Mike Woodward said they delivered approximately 13
shopping carts of toys and gifts to North Brevard Charities using Donagher’s
“This year, North Brevard Charities committed to providing gifts to 600
underprivileged children in the North Brevard area. I know that after seeing
how many toys they had prior to our delivery, they would not have been able
to meet their commitment,” Woodward said.
He added the charity had the same need last year and Donagher’s donation
helped them meet their goal during the toy drive.
“Mr. Donagher’s generosity made their drive a success and we were all proud
to be a part of such a wonderful cause,” Woodward said. “We look forward to
continuing our new tradition with Mr. Donagher to spread Christmas cheer to
the underprivileged kids in North Brevard.”
After visiting Florida this year, Donagher extended similar support to the
Silver Spring Community Fire Company in Mechanicsburg, Pa. and donated
$2,900. Children from a local shelter were given the opportunity to pick out
a gift, play games and attend a dinner with the fire department where he
dressed as Santa Claus.
Penn Credit also focuses on charitable activities in many of the other
communities it serves throughout the country, having contributed more than
$100,000 to various organizations in 2015.
“It’s a great feeling, we should all do more for others less fortunate,”
