Rainer and Company’s Valen Cianci was recently recognized for his outstanding service to senior citizens in Chester County during the Chester County Commissioners’ Sunshine Meeting.

Cianci is a U.S. Marine veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. After returning from service, he and fellow U.S. Marine veteran Richard Lorah started a non-profit called Granny Handymen, Inc., based in Downingtown.
