Ways To Support
Aaron’s Acres is most grateful for the donations that we have received in the past and continue to receive in the present! As a result of the new tax bill, we are recommending that you contact your tax advisor about the following ways you may still be able to make your charitable contributions more tax efficient going forward:
- Establishing a Donor Advised Fund
- Taking qualified charitable distributions which come directly from your IRA for those that have reached the age of 70 1/2
When you become a partner with Aaron’s Acres, your contribution does more than help spread our message. A contribution to an annual campaign or a special event directly benefits the children and young adults, ages 5-21 with developmental disabilities we support. All donations are truly appreciated!
Here, you’ll find some ways you can personally contribute to our year-round programs and activities throughout Berks and Lancaster County:
Lend your products or services to support Aaron’s Acres’ mission.
Support or help organize third-party events, including the Hershey 10K, Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, and more.
Employee Giving/Matching Programs
Be sure to ask your employer about charitable payroll-deduction programs, including United Way.
Support our annual Golf Event and other events throughout the year.
Honorary or Memorial Gifts

Jersey Mike’s Subs Month of Giving & Day of Giving
During the month of March, all are invited to come into their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and make a donation to the location’s designated charity partner. Aaron’s Acres is the designated charity partner of the Jersey Mike’s location on Fruitville Pike located at The Shoppes at Belmont in Lancaster, PA.
The campaign culminates in the nationwide event, Day of Giving, when local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators will donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in to local charities.
Jersey Mike’s #DayofGiving was cancelled this year in response to COVID-19. Thank to everyone who joined us for #MonthofGiving at Jersey Mike’s on Fruitville Pike during the month of March.
