The Keller Family Chiropractic Clinic is holding its annual fundraiser for the Millersport Community Food Pantry. This fundraiser is their way of giving back to their patients by giving all the proceeds raised from office visits and Basket Raffles to the Millersport Community Food Bank. All established patients’ chiropractic treatments Friday, March 18 are a $25 donation (not billed to insurance). March 14-17 new patients can enjoy an initial office visit for their donation of $25.
A percentage of all cash massages that week will be donated as well. And don’t forget all the Raffle Baskets and the “Thumper” Massage Raffle.

In 2021, the clinic was able to donate $4,863 to the food pantry, with which they were able to purchase a great deal of food, supplies needed for patrons and a portion went to the building expansion. This goal was accomplished thanks to the generosity of the patients. The goal of Chiropractic Adjustments to Benefit the Millersport Community Food Pantry this year is $5,000.
