YORK, Pa.—Closing out the 2021 holiday season, Rutter’s Children’s Charities is making a huge impact in the communities where the convenience store chain operates.
Through its Secret Santa program, select Rutter’s employees can choose an eligible charity, and Rutter’s Children’s Charities donates $1,000 to that organization. In 2021, 75 employees were chosen to participate, totaling $75,000 in donations to charities that focus on children, education and local community efforts.
“Having Rutter’s employees select donations toward organizations they’re passionate about, is one of our favorite things to do each year,” said Chris Hartman, president of Rutter’s Children’s Charities.
The Secret Santa program began in 2016 to direct donations back to local organizations during the holiday season. Giving back to the communities in which Rutter’s operates is an important part of Rutter’s Children’s Charities’ mission. Since its inception, the Secret Santa program has donated more than $282,000 to various local charities.
