Rutter's Chosen Corporate Citizen of the Year by Library Group

10/21/2009
YORK, Pa. -- Rutter's Cos. has been recognized as Corporate Citizen of the Year by Pennsylvania Citizens for Better Libraries.

The award recognizes a business or company for its support of a local public library or consortium of libraries and, by extension, of the entire Pennsylvania library community. This year, Rutter's Cos. sponsored the York County Libraries Summer Reading Club, helping to raise overall reading capacity, literacy and readiness for school among 11,260 children across York County.

Rutter's $40,000 contribution was cited as having increased participation in the program, which ran June through August and featured events, author visits, book discussions, contests and prizes.

Family-owned and third-generation-managed, the Rutter's Cos. (www.rutters.com) comprise Rutter's Farm Stores, Rutter's Dairy and M&G Realty, a real estate development company. They employ more than 1,400 people in central Pennsylvania.

The nonprofit Pennsylvania Citizens for Better Libraries (www.pcblpa.org) is an organization of advocates that speaks for libraries throughout Pennsylvania.
