Mil’s Dairy Drive-In has been a family business for over twenty-five years. In October 2017, Kelly and her husband took the reins. The drive-in has been known for its dedication to the community but most recently Kelly and her husband have gotten more involved.

During the recent three day school shutdown from snow, Kelly realized that some kids who benefit from the backpack meal program would be lacking from the long break.

They decided to donate pizzas to the Whitesville PTO board to help distribute them. It’s community awareness like this that shows the love and dedication she has for those around her.

“I get joy from giving back to the community!” says Ward.
