YORK, Pa. -- The Rutter's Cos., including the Rutter's Farm Stores chain of convenience stores, donated $120,000 to the YMCA of York, Pa., and York County, to fund scholarships for children who have disabilities or are from lower-income families, the company stated.
"We are privileged to be the recipients of the Rutter's investment to expand this preschool initiative," Larry Richardson, the YMCA president and CEO, said in a statement. "It is an exciting time as we work together to impact all kids who wish to access a quality preschool program, preparing them for success in school."
The contribution will provide funding for the next four years. The company will also serve as the major sponsor for a partnership called With Rutter's, All Kids Count!, that will serve children ages 3 to 6, according to the company.
"Rutter's is proud to continue and expand its ongoing relationship with the YMCA of York and York County," Scott Hartman, president and CEO of Rutter's Farm Stores, said in a statement. "The ability to give these children with disabilities and others a head start on their education and life skills is very rewarding, and we're honored to help expand the reach of the YMCA's preschool program."
