"This has been a tight race. Customers were able to get involved and help their local nonprofit organizations, and now get to see the positive outcome of these donations. We are always looking for ways to support the local community, and Vote With Your Dollars is a great program to do so. Thank you to all of our customers that participated in this amazing program and for showing their support to wonderful charities," said Derek Gaskins, Rutter's Chief Customer Officer.
The Vote With Your Dollars Program utilizes the technology of Rutter's mobile app, website, and loyalty program so customers can support the preferred charity. Customers could login to their Rutter's Rewards account via computer or mobile to choose from a list of charities they wished to support. Every dollar spent at the pumps or inside any Rutter's store with a registered Rutter's Rewards card or VIP credential counted as a vote towards the customers' selected charity. Each organization was encouraged to share the program with their members, friends and family to collect the most votes. Visit Rutters.com for more information and the enrollment process for 2017.
