2017 Stems Hunger food drive wish list

The 2017 edition of our annual food drive, Royer’s Stems Hunger, benefits the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and the Greater Berks Food Bank.

Non-perishable items can be dropped off June 17-July 1 at any one of our stores. For every item, the donor will receive a free carnation, up to six per visit.

The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank notes that items rich in protein, which are essential to providing adequate nutrition, are the most desired food drive donation items.

These include:
• Peanut butter (to-go size)
• Shelf-stable 100 percent fruit juice
• Canned chicken or tuna
• Single-serve macaroni and cheese
• Shelf-stable milk (8 ounces)
• Almonds
• Individual fruit cups (peaches, pears, mixed fruit, 4 ounces)

The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank asks that all items be labeled, factor- sealed and in good condition.

The Royer’s Kids Club will kick off the food drive with a June 17 event in all stores. Children ages 5 to 12 are asked to donate a nonperishable food item as the price of admission, and to bring an empty food can in which to make an arrangement for themselves.

Time slots are available at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Registration is required by calling your nearest Royer’s store.

QUEST Inc. participants tour Royer’s corporate complex

Whether it’s Royer’s Kids Club members or Girl Scouts, a school or church group, or you name it, we love to share our love of flowers with the community.

We are especially grateful when groups and organizations take time out of their days to visit us. That was the case on April 21 when our corporate complex in Lebanon played host to a group from QUEST Inc.

Licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, QUEST provides vocational and life skills to empower people with disabilities and other vocational disadvantages.

Dena Eberhart, Royer’s human resources manager, was QUEST’s tour guide, taking her guests through our Lebanon store; wholesale, central design and dish garden departments; and a greenhouse.

If your group is interested in a visit to our corporate complex or one of our 16 area stores, please contact Dena at 717-273-4090, extension 2313, or dena.eberhart@royers.com.

Royer’s giving back portion of online prom sales to area high schools

corsage

Area high schools compete in many ways, from football games to tennis matches, debates to television quiz shows.

Here’s a new one for them to consider: prom flowers. Except in this competition, there are only winners.

For the first time, Royer’s Flowers is returning a percentage of online prom sales to participating area high schools in the form of cash or flowers. For total sales of $2,500 or more, schools will earn 15 percent; for sales below $2,500, they will earn 10 percent.

The schools can use the reimbursed cash or flowers at their discretion.

“It’s not school against school, but we are hoping to generate a little friendly competition among them,” said Greg Royer, president and CEO of family-owned Royer’s. “If a school registers and records even one online prom sale, it wins. We look forward to seeing which school comes out on top.”

Prom season has begun and continues into early June. Royer’s has compiled a list of high schools and dates of their proms in the seven counties in which the company operates.

By going to royers.com/prom, dance-goers can select their school from a drop-down menu and then shop for corsages and boutonnieres.

If a school has not registered, it can do so by having one of its prom organizers contact Jaime Kevles at jaime.kevles@royers.com.

Royer’s employees have donated $740 to the American Heart Association’s Lancaster division.

In January, employees had the opportunity to purchase red polo shirts bearing the Royer’s logo. For each shirt, they donated $10 to the heart association.

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.
