R. James Macaleer Day – Jan. 29

R. James (Jim) Macaleer, co-founder & CEO of Shared Medical Systems, was a highly regarded philanthropist in the community. In memory of Jim and his generosity to Chester County, the commissioners have proclaimed January 29 (Jim’s birthday) as R. James Macaleer Day. Your gift of funds or food to the Chester County Food Bank will honor Jim’s legacy and dedication to helping others.
