Rutter’s and Rutter’s Children’s Charities announced that their charitable donations reached a new record of $1.8 million in 2023, the company said in a statement.

“We’re very privileged to be able to continue our charitable giving at Rutter’s in 2023,” said Chris Hartman, vice president of fuels, advertising and development. “The combined efforts of Rutter’s and Rutter’s Children’s Charities to support our communities is incredible, and we’re hopeful 2024 will be an even bigger year for charitable giving.”

Throughout the year, Rutter’s and Rutter’s Children’s Charities hold several fundraising events and programs as a way for employees, suppliers and customers to participate in charitable giving throughout their communities.

One of Rutter’s Children’s Charities programs, $100k for the Holidays, donated $25,000 to four charities with a focus on benefiting children. This year’s recipients included: Blair Regional YMCA, Centre County Youth Service Bureau, Chambersburg Fire and Police and York County Children’s Advocacy Center.

During Rutter’s annual Toy Drive, employees donated a total of 596 toys, which were split between the Salvation Army and the Mount Alto Fire Department. Rutter’s Children’s Charities matched ten dollars for each toy that was donated, meaning each organization received 298 toys and $2,980.

Rutter’s Children’s Charities also holds an annual golf outing each year. In 2023, the event raised $900,000. The event supported giving programs, such as $100K for the Holidays and Youth Sports Giveaway, to help benefit local charitable organizations throughout the year.

In addition, Rutter’s charitable giving in 2023 also included over $390,000 to the Central PA Food Bank’s Retail Donation Program in the form of prepared subs, sandwiches, bakery items, milk and tea products.

Some of Rutter’s other annual charitable efforts include its charity cannister program and $550,000 in Educational Improvement Tax Credit donations.

Earlier this month, CF Altitude LLC, operating as Alta Convenience and Petro-Mart, announced it had raised more than $300,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
