Provides donations to charities during ribbon cutting celebration for new c-store.
Rutter’s is giving back this holiday season. During Rutter’s Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at its newest store in Strasburg, Pa. on Wednesday, Dec. 14, Rutter’s donated $4,000 to local charities.
Each organization received $1,000. Recipients were the Food Pantry in the First Presbyterian Church of Strasburg, which will use the contribution to provide 80 families food for Christmas, the Solanco Food Bank, which will use the donation for 75 Christmas meal boxes, Strasburg Borough Police Department, and the Strasburg Fire Company #1.
This is Rutter’s fourth location in Lancaster County and its 66th store. Attendees at the event included State Representative Keith Greiner, Strasburg Borough Mayor Henry Miller, and many Strasburg Borough Council Officials. The Strasburg Rutter’s is currently in the process to feature one of Rutter’s Beer Caves. The 29-degree Rutter’s Beer Cave will be stocked with a variety of craft, import, and domestic beers and ciders available in singles, six and 12 packs inside.
“Giving back to the community not only during our Grand Openings, but all throughout the year is something we value very much, especially during this time of year. We are excited to grow as a company, and in 2016 we will be giving away over $500,000 to charities where our stores are located,” said Derek Gaskins, Rutter’s chief customer officer.
