YORK, Pa. -- Rutter's Farm Stores has contributed $3,000 to three community organizations in Shippensburg, where its newest convenience store opened Sept. 1. The company held a ribbon-cutting and check-presentation event Monday.
"We're excited to return to Shippensburg and Cumberland County after a 17-year-absence," said Scott Hartman, president of Rutter's. "We're proud once again to be part of the community and supporting worthwhile organizations such as these."
The recipients are:
-- Shippensburg Area EMS, $1,000 toward the cost of purchasing a hydraulic stretcher.
-- King’s Kettle Food Pantry, $1,000 for the purchase of food. The pantry serves low-income families in the Shippensburg School District.
-- Vigilant Hose Company, $1,000 toward the purchase of hose and nozzles and paying off debt on a recently purchased fire truck.
The new Rutter's is at Airport and Walnut Bottom (Route 174) roads in Shippensburg Township. Family-owned and third generation-managed, York-based Rutter's operates 51 c-stores in Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, Lancaster and York counties.
