Deitsch Eck Restaurant in Lenhartsville is using its menu to raise money for local charities with a new campaign they call “Plate It Forward”.

According to Steve Stetzler, owner and chef, when a customer orders any PA Dutch special throughout the month, $1 from each special is designated for that month’s chosen charitable organization.

On Wednesday, February 19th, Stetzler presented the the Kempton Lions Club with a check for $630.

The Kempton Lions Club supports many charitable projects throughout the year, including loaning medical equipment, supporting local families in need, support for over 16 local nonprofit organizations, annual distribution of holiday baskets, clean up at the Lenhartsville interchange and scholarships to Kutztown students.

“It is wonderful that Deitsch Eck builds such generous and extensive community support into their business” said to Doug Yingling, Club President.

“We were honored to be chosen as the beneficiary for January and this gift will enable us to further our charitable impact in Kempton and beyond.”
