Rutter's Donates $86,000 to Charities

YORK, PA -- The Rutter's Cos. has awarded contributions totaling $86,000 to four charitable efforts in the York, Pa. area. Family-owned and third generation-managed, the Rutter's Cos. is made up of Rutter's Farm Stores, Rutter's Dairy and M&G Realty, a real-estate holding company, reported NACS online.

"It's a great feeling for all of us at Rutter's to make these contributions and to continue a tradition of supporting worthwhile causes in our community," Scott Hartman, president of Rutter's Farm Stores, said in the report.

The company donated $1,000 to the family of Tucker Haas, a 5-year-old cancer patient, to help pay for medical costs. Rutter's matched the monies raised for Tucker at the Oct. 28 Central York High School football game.

In addition, $10,000 went to the Panther Foundation, a non-profit group that raises money to support scholarships and other programs of Central York School District.

Rutter’s also gave $25,000 to the Junior Achievement of South Central Pennsylvania to support its Exchange City in York, which will be visited by more than 7,000 students during the current school year. Students learn about American enterprise by working in a life-sized replica of a city made of 14 businesses.

Fifty-thousand dollars was donated to Logos Academy to use for student scholarships. Logos Academy is a non-profit, independent school dedicated to serving the educational needs of York's inner-city children.

Rutter's charitable contributions in 2005 will total approximately $200,000, according to the company.
