York, Pa.-based Rutter’s has teamed up with some of its top vendors for the upcoming Feeding the Frontline initiative on July 24 to show appreciation for frontline workers.
Because they’re on duty 24/7, on 7/24, trontline workers will receive a free meal at Rutter’s as a thank you for their hard work and dedication. The meal will consist of a grab-and-go sandwich or wrap, a bag of chips and a regular fountain drink, which they can get at any Rutter’s location in Pennsylvania, Maryland or West Virginia. The offer is available to First Responders in uniform, medical or active duty military with ID, and Rutter’s store employees.
In addition, Rutter’s has partnered with the American Red Cross for the month of July and will be collecting money through its monthly Charity Cannister program to help support local Red Cross initiatives. Customers will be able to make monetary donations to the Red Cross at any Rutter’s location.
“We are appreciative of Rutter’s support in the Red Cross’s lifesaving mission of delivering help and hope,” said Laura Hughes, Executive Director for Central PA American Red Cross. “Each day, families in our community and across the country rely on us to help them face life’s emergencies, and we couldn’t do it without the selfless generosity of our supporters.”
Further, from July 18-23, Rutter’s plans to give away $1,000 a day to different local charities supporting first responders, and on July 24, the company will donate $5,000.
“Rutter’s is proud to support our frontline workers, including our fantastic store employees, during these challenging times,” said Scott Hartman, Rutter’s President and CEO. “Being able to support the frontline and give back to our communities, through the Red Cross and Rutter’s Children’s Charities, is needed right now and we’re happy we can help.”
The free meal is available to the first eligible 200 customers per store. Limit one per customer.
