Citadel to Support Aaron’s Acres of Lancaster
LANCASTER, Pa. — Citadel, a corporate sponsor of Lancaster’s 2018 Extraordinary Give (“Extra Give”), recently hosted a contest for the public to nominate any Lancaster non-profit for Citadel to feature during the campaign. Aaron’s Acres of Lancaster, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides recreational programs for children with disabilities, won the contest with an overwhelming percentage of the votes.
“On behalf of everyone at Aaron’s Acres, we feel fortunate to have been chosen as the winner of the Citadel Extraordinary Give contest,” said Risa C. Paskoff, executive director, Aaron’s Acres. “Our goal is to continue providing recreational programs to children and young adults with developmental disabilities. Thank you, Citadel, for supporting us and Lancaster families.”
The Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County's Largest Day of Giving. In just six days of giving, the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $31 million for more than 500 organizations. On November 16th, the Extraordinary Give Day is expected to be the most impactful to date with donations matched by the largest stretch pool since the program launched.
As Citadel moves forward with its efforts in the Extra Give campaign, it will raise awareness and funds for Aaron’s Acres. As a dedicated business in the Lancaster community, Citadel is helping to stretch overall donations for non-profits throughout Lancaster County through Extra Give.
“We’re proud to participate in such a major event that raises funds and awareness for non-profits in the Lancaster community,” said Doug Thompson, regional director, Citadel. “The staff at our Lancaster branches feel extremely energized about Extra Give and thrilled to have Aaron’s Acres as Citadel’s featured organization.”
Aaron’s Acres provides individuals with disabilities age 5-21 year-round therapeutic, age-appropriate recreational programs directed by specially trained and certified staff. Emotional, educational, and recreational support is offered for the individual’s entire family.
