Past Community Outreach

We are grateful for the services they provide in supporting our veterans and community.

Keystone RV Center has decided to give back to the community in 2020 by donating to a different charity each quarter! We will donate $10 for every RV sold during that quarter to the charity or cause we have chosen!
We did $10 per RV sold as our normal charity donation, in the months of June, July, and August to Save a Vet save a Pet for a total of $7,980.
During this time of government restrictions, especially in Pennsylvania, we wanted to make a positive impact on our local community and the veterans who made, what freedom we are allowed to have currently, possible.
We can never repay what our veterans have sacrificed and provided for us, but we can at least help to support them.
Operation Save-A-Vet, Save-A-Pet is a Veterans service dog program dedicated to helping Franklin County Veterans with service connected disabilities lead happier, healthier and more productive lives.

We are still giving back! Keystone RV Center just made our first quarterly donations for 2020 in the amount of $3,300 to Mission 22.
Mission 22 is a non-profit who combats the ever-rising veteran suicide rate. Every day, more than twenty veterans are lost to suicide. Mission 22 wants to bring that number to zero. It does this with three main programs; veteran treatment programs, memorials and national awareness. Mission 22 provides treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues. Mission 22 serves combat veterans, those injured in training who therefore could not deploy and victims of MST. Mission 22 also has an Ambassador volunteer program for people to get involved as well. Ambassadors educate the public on veteran issues, help get veterans into Mission 22 treatment programs and create resources in their communities. Through these three programs, it enables a push for the betterment of our nation's heroes and stands united in the war against veteran suicide.
Keystone RV Center feels very strongly that we need to give back to the community that offers us so much support. We do this by donating to various charity organizations throughout the year.
Our final donation of 2019 goes to The House Of Hope! The House Of Hope helps facilitate resources to assist in the rehabilitation of women suffering from chemical dependency and related disorders. Chad Peiffer presents Bernadette Bowman with a check for $3,160 on behalf of Keystone RV Center.

It is important that we do not lose sight of the tremendous efforts that our Armed Service Members put forth to ensure our freedom in this great nation. From Keystone RV Center, to all Veterans, as well as current and future service members, thank you for all that you have done. You are our true heroes.

"At Gracie's Place, we believe in not just new life, but with the fellowship of other recovering addicts and God's guidance, you can have an abundant life. We believe that the only way we can maintain what we have gained is by giving it away. Recovery is more than abstinence from mind-altering substances, it is a way of life. Recovery is identifying and developing core values of integrity, service, and spiritual principles that we incorporate into our daily lives.." -Gracie's Place
