Pennsylvania Skill, powered by Pace-O-Matic, provides legal skill amusement games, which are distributed by hundreds of local small businesses in the coin-operation entertainment industry. The entire Pennsylvania Skill family understands people are facing serious financial challenges right now due to the pandemic and the economic slowdown. In response the organization wants to give back.

In April 2020, Pennsylvania Skill made a $250,000 donation to Feeding Pennsylvania, which provides funding to the nine food banks across the state. The donation equaled 750,000 meals for needy families.

The “Take Out On PA Skill” program provided nearly 600 meals to people in Williamsport in June and nearly 500 meals in July in Harrisburg. In August, along with the Altoona event, 500 meals were given away in Lebanon.
