Nicholas County Community Foundation is very fortunate to have Community Leaders who are involved with funding different organizations.  Robert and Shauna Shafer have shown their love for our family pets in 2019 by starting the Shafer Family Fund in support of our local animal shelter, animal rescue and youth activities.

Robert and Shauna are long time residents of Summersville, raising their family here in Nicholas County. They raised their two daughters, Shannon and Shealyn.  Robert opened his Shafter Insurance Associates in 1992. In 2007 Robert was elected Mayor of Summersville and is continuing to serve in that capacity for the past thirteen years.  Shauna has worked with the American Cancer for more than twenty years, being active in Fundraisers and the Mission of the American Cancer Society statewide.

The Robert and Shauna have always been supported of the youth academics and athletics.  They have been a foster family for dogs, until they could find their “Furever” home.  Being a part of the Nicholas County Community Foundation has allowed them to create a lasting fund to help support local youth and animal services.
