Networking business opens

Networkly, a local social media startup in Hollidaysburg, is now up and running.

Networkly was founded by Irving Ventura, Yubin Cho, Alexis Rondon, Joan Gil and Dave Hite because they believe there is a problem with the status quo on how professionals find jobs and build professional networks.

They believe that with the current system, it can seem next to impossible to find talent or find a job, and ultimately progress through a career.

Networkly is a workplace networking site for professionals to connect and showcase an online resume and profile. Employers will be able to create a company page, post jobs and source for talent.

The site launched last week in Beta at www.networkly.io. The target audience is Generation Z. People will be able to sign up and create a profile, add a picture and add other social media.

Rutter’s donates to food banks

YORK — Since the beginning of March, Rutter’s has donated over $50,000 worth of food and beverages to the Central Penn Food Bank in the company’s continuous effort to help support local communities.

With the donation from Rutter’s, the food bank is able to provide nourishment for those in need during these uncertain times. The items donated by Rutter’s are packaged as meals to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for families in the Central Penn Food Bank’s program.

“Our company was founded in the food industry, so we understand the importance of providing our communities with access to nutritious meals,” Scott Hartman, Rutter’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “We hope our continued donations are able to provide peace of mind for local families during these trying times.”

The food bank is committed to providing healthy, nutritious food to those in need. In 2019, Rutter’s donated more than $400,000 in food and drinks to the food bank and plans to continue their long-term support of the organization.
