Rutter’s Donates $75,000 to Three Local Charities for Second Year in a Row
We just announced three charities to each receive $25,000 from their “Vote With Your Dollars” philanthropic program. This is the second year in a row that we have offered this program. Vote With Your Dollars enables customers to utilize the Rutter’s Rewards loyalty program to help select local charities to receive financial support.
The winners of this years’ Vote With Your Dollars campaign are York County Food Bank, Make a Wish Foundation, and Leg Up Farm; all three to receive $25,000 each.
- The York County Food Bank has chosen to use their donation to renovate a larger building, which will contain more storage, a nutritional education center, and will decrease food waste.
- Make-A-Wish® Greater PA and WV, will use their donation to grant five wishes to children in our community with a life-threatening medical condition.
- Leg Up Farm has elected to use the donation to replace the footing in their therapeutic riding arena. This will decrease the horse’s injuries, which will lead to fewer medical bills for the horses and avoid anxiety for the children not being able to ride their horse.
The Vote With Your Dollars Program utilizes the technology of our mobile app, website, and loyalty program so customers can support the preferred charity. You could login to their Rutter’s Rewards account via computer or mobile to choose from a list of charities they wished to support. Every dollar spent at the pumps or inside any of our stores with a registered Rutter’s Rewards card or VIP credential counted as a vote towards the customers’ selected charity. Each organization was encouraged to share the program with their members, friends and family to collect the most votes.
