Rutter’s Finishes Banner Year with a New Store, Office Expansion, & Over $715,000 Donated to Charity in 2017

We gave $370,000 in additional charitable donations to bring the 2017 total to over $715,000 given to Central Pennsylvania charities! In 2017, we also opened a new store in St Thomas, PA in December.  In addition, we are also in the midst of an expansion of our corporate support office, doubling the size to create more opportunities for growth into 2018!

“It has been another great year for everyone at Rutter’s. We opened three new stores and remodeled 20 stores. We enjoy supporting charities and organizations dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children and customers in the communities we serve. With plans to double the size of our office in February, build 9 new stores, and complete 38 store remodels (including beer caves, flex fuels, and gaming rooms) we look forward to another fantastic and busy year in 2018,” said Scott Hartman, Rutter’s CEO and President.

Some of the charities we supported in 2017 are:

  • Crispus Attucks = $50,000
  • YMCA of York County = $42,800

Corporate Giving Programs

New Corporate Giving Programs

We just introduced two new corporate giving programs, Vote with Your Dollars and Rutter’s Rewards Schools, to continue our financial support of local children’s charities.

Since 2005, We have given more than $4.45 million to local children’s charities. We are funding Vote with Your Dollars and Rutter’s Rewards Schools with $100,000 raised at our Rutter’s Children’s Charities’ annual golf outing.

Both new programs rely on technology and will empower our customers to help decide which charities the funds are allocated to.

The Rutter’s Children’s Charities donation committee selected seven Central Pennsylvania charities as finalists to participate in the Vote with Your Dollars program this year:

  • Make-A-Wish* Greater PA and WV
  • Hoffman Homes for Youth
  • Junior Achievement
  • York County Food Bank
  • Red Cross of South Central PA
  • Chambersburg Hospital
  • York Country Day School

Customers can read about each charity, their plans for the donation and learn how to pledge their support at rutters.com/charities or by using Rutter’s mobile app. Each of the participating organizations will also encourage their network of followers, members and volunteers to support the cause. Every dollar spent at Rutter’s by a charity’s supporter will count as a vote.

**Thank you to all who participated in the Rutter’s Vote With Your Dollars program. Voting for 2015 has ended and our winning charities will be posted over the next two weeks. Please check back soon for more details on the 2016 Rutter’s Vote With Your Dollars Program.**

Rutter’s Rewards Schools gives clubs, teams and other organizations from local schools an opportunity to meet their fundraising goals. Once approved to participate, the organization will have 90 days to encourage its members, their families and friends to shop at Rutter’s. The club will earn a percentage of the total dollar amount spent in the stores by their supporters.
