Rutter’s and Rutter’s Children’s Charities announced that total charitable donations made in 2021 has surpassed $1 million.
Every year, the York-based convenience store has numerous fundraising opportunities to benefit local charitable organizations. Through these different programs, employees, customers, suppliers and numerous local organizations partner in giving back throughout their shared communities. Some of the annual charitable efforts include: Vote with Your Dollars, Rutter’s Charity Cannister Program, Rutter’s Children’s Charities’ Golf Outing, Secret Santa Program, Feeding the Frontline, and Rutter’s Rewards Schools. The money raised, along with Rutter’s corporate charitable contributions, are used to help local charities with specific needs or projects throughout the year.
“We have a great appreciation for the people and organizations who continue to support our communities every single day, especially during these difficult times. We’re elated to have the ability to support them, and look forward to continuing our charitable efforts here in 2022,” said Chris Hartman, president of Rutter’s Children’s Charities, in a statement.
This year, Rutter’s also hosted their annual toy drive where they collected a total of 544 toys. These toys were evenly divided and donated to both the Mont Alto Fire Company and The Salvation Army to be given out to children during this past holiday season.
