Shop At Harter House March 1-7 To Help The Homeless

Each year, Harter House stores host the Annual Jerry Bettlach/Jim Trimble Memorial to raise money for The Kitchen. These funds provide vital services to people who are homeless. Shop at Harter House stores March 1-7, and 5% of your purchase will go to The Kitchen.

Harter House stores have raised over $1.3 million for The Kitchen through this event. We hope this will be a record-breaking year as Harter House celebrates 50 years in business! The Bettlach family started the Jerry Bettlach/Jim Trimble Memorial to honor two men who were dedicated to giving back to our community.

“Jerry was a leader in showing you how to give back. He and Jim were both hard workers, splitting time between running the business and being family men. They didn’t have much time to give back. But what they did have, they gave to Sister Lorraine and The Kitchen,” says Barbara.

We hope you will shop at Harter House March 1-7 to support the hundreds of people who find a path to stability and purpose through The Kitchen, Inc. With your help, we can continue to honor Jerry Bettlach and Jim Trimble through this incredible event.

About Harter House

In 1973, Jerry and Barbara opened their Harter House Meat Market. Since then, the business has expanded to seven locations. Since 1973, our goal has been to provide customers with the best shopping experience they can have. Our long-term employees are our greatest assets, and they work hard to foster Harter House’s relationships with all our customers.
