thumb_img_9210_1024-2

Royer’s collected hundreds of cards and coloring pages for active military and veterans as part of the American Red Cross’ “Holidays for Heroes” program.

From Nov. 11-23 in each of our 16 stores, Royer’s invited the public to donate the items, which are destined for military installations, VFWs, American Legions, the Lebanon VA and retirement homes in 22 counties in central Pennsylvania.

The American Red Cross (redcross.org/centralpa) prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Last year in central Pennsylvania, the Red Cross assisted close to 2,000 people affected by nearly 750 local disasters.

Royer’s partners with Manheim Township High School to raise more than $400 for Mini-THON

manheim-township-hs-mini-thon-nov-2016-2

Kara Rickenbach approached Royer’s with a fundraising idea for Manheim Township High School’s Mini-THON in February.

Rickenbach, a junior and head of the Lancaster County school’s donor and alumni relations committee, wanted to sell corsages and boutonnieres to classmates attending homecoming in October.

Working with Pam Sigel, who manages Royer’s Lancaster North store, Rickenbach and other committee members took orders during school lunches.

Earning a 15 percent commission on their sales, the committee raised $413.86. The school’s seventh annual Mini-THON, scheduled for Feb. 24, will benefit Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.

Cheryl Brill, Royer’s vice president of retail operations, said the company hopes to build on Rickenbach’s efforts by working with Manheim Township and other high schools on similar fundraisers.

A boo-tiful time at our final kids club event of 2016


Royer’s collecting cards and coloring pages Nov. 11-23 for Red Cross’ ‘Holidays for Heroes’

thumb_dsc_0074_1024

Royer’s will collect cards and coloring pages for active military and veterans in each of our stores Nov. 11-23 as part of the American Red Cross’ “Holidays for Heroes” program (formerly Holiday Mail for Heroes).

Collected cards and coloring pages will be handed over to the Red Cross, whose volunteers will organize them for delivery. Destinations include military installations, VFWs, American Legions, the Lebanon VA and retirement homes in 22 counties in central Pennsylvania.

Cards may be dropped off at any Royer’s during normal business hours. Coloring pages are available at the stores or can be downloaded here:

Christmas Tree

Santa

Ornament

Reindeer

Dreidel

The Red Cross offers these guidelines for preparing cards:

• Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member” as cards addressed to specific individuals cannot be delivered through this program.
• Include messages of support and thanks.
• Sign your name to them.
• Don’t include letters or other personal information (photos, addresses).
• Refrain from choosing cards with glitter.

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. Last year in central Pennsylvania, the Red Cross assisted close to 2,000 people affected by nearly 750 local disasters.


Royer’s honors veterans with free red, white and blue bouquets on Nov. 11

croppedVeterans Day bouquet

Any U.S. veteran who stops by a Royer’s store on Nov. 11 will receive a free red, white and blue bouquet.

“No one is more deserving of a national day of honor than the men and women who have served and sacrificed to protect our freedom,” said Greg Royer, president and CEO of the family-owned florist.

“It’s our privilege to offer this gesture of thanks on Veterans Day.”

The offer is available in person at all Royer’s stores.


New Christmas decorations are on the march to our stores

We’ll have a fresh look this holiday season as we introduce a variety of new store decorations, from candles and gift-wrapped packages to ornamental stars and toy soldiers standing 8 feet or more.

They’ll be unveiled publicly in early November, but we thought you might enjoy a sneak peek.
