Hospice Labor Day Auction
Rodgers & Associates is thrilled to be the Presenting Sponsor for the Hospice & Community Care’s annual Labor Day Auction. This event is Hospice & Community Care’s single largest fundraising event, which began in 1984 at the Willow Street Fire Company. The Auction has grown substantially since then and is held at the Solanco Fairgrounds on Labor Day weekend. The money raised from the Auction provides end-of-life care and support for patients and families. We hope you will join us and make the Auction a part of your Labor Day Weekend tradition!Visit website
Lancaster County Food Hub
Rodgers & Associates is passionate about helping people by focusing on organizations that provide a path for people to become self-sufficient. Specifically, those that provide basic needs like food, clothing, shelter and transportation. This is also the mission of the Food Hub. Running out of space in 2012, the Food Hub needed to find a new location to better meet the needs of those they served. Rodgers & Associates helped the organization raise $1.2 million to enable a move to their current home on North Queen Street in Lancaster. We continue to annually support the organization financially.Visit website
Meals on Wheels of Lancaster
Meals on Wheels of Lancaster provides nutritious, freshly prepared meals at a reasonable cost to those who cannot reasonably provide meals for themselves. Many of our neighbors gather at Meals on Wheels of Lancaster to pick up freshly prepared, quality, and nutritious food for home delivery. They volunteer in the kitchen, make deliveries, and visit with meal recipients. Over 400 volunteers assist nine staff members to ensure the food security of approximately 1,000 individuals every year. Rodgers & Associates is proud to support this organization’s labor of love to our community.Visit Website
Thomas Jefferson wrote that the “pursuit of happiness” has to do with an internal journey to know ourselves and an external journey of selfless service to others. The outstanding men & women of SCORE who volunteer hundreds of hours of their time & talent must be the happiest people in our community. This chapter of SCORE has been recognized nationally as the Chapter of the Year twice in the past ten years. Rodgers & Associates is proud to be a sponsor in support of their efforts.Visit website
Tenfold combined the services and programs of Tabor Community Services, Inc. and Lancaster Housing Opportunity Partnership (LHOP) in 2020. Tenfold serves the community by providing people the tools and inspiration to meet their housing and financial challenges. In January 2009, we learned their services were overwhelmed by the number of people needing their help to avoid foreclosure. Their backlog was pushed out six months just to get an appointment. We responded by donating our advisers to help with counseling and shrink the backlog. When they lost state funding for their Matched Savings for Tomorrow program in 2010, Rodgers & Associates stepped in to become the lead sponsor for this important program.Visit website
Rick and Jessica first learned of UDS when their church raised money for someone who needed a service dog. Rodgers & Associates became an annual supporter after a tour of their facilities revealed that training service dogs was only one of the services they provide. Accessible Home Modifications, Customized wheelchairs, In-Home Personal Care, and Adult Enrichment, are just some of the many ways UDS helps people with disabilities, including veterans and the elderly, lead more independent and fulfilling lives.Visit website
The United Way of Lancaster County has been an impressive community leader. In 2015, they completely reorganized how they distributed community funding. The agency took a leadership role in forming 17 non-profit collaboratives – its Collective Impact Partners – who have pledged to collaborate with the agency to solve community problems on the way to achieving four bold goals by 2025:
1. 100% of the children entering kindergarten are ready to learn
2. 100% of students and adults having post-secondary credentials
3. 50% decrease in individual and families living in poverty
4. 100% of individuals, children and families having a “medical home”; physician, dentist and mental health provider
Rodgers & Associates is pleased to support the United Way of Lancaster County as they work to achieve their bold goals by 2025.Visit Website
