Craft Brewery Employee Assistance Relief Campaign
On March 22nd, 2020 (World Water Day) Drink Local Think Global will be launching a fundraising campaign for craft brewery employees in need across the nation, This One’s For You: Craft Brewery Employee Assistance Relief Campaign. 100% of all funds raised through this campaign will be disbursed to craft brewery employees who have been affected by COVID-19!
Drink Local Think Global (DLTG) is a 501 c3 nonprofit that provides sustainable access to clean drinking water for communities around the world. Partnering with craft breweries and connecting them to communities in need of clean water has always been a key component of Drink Local Think Global. Because of the current situation regarding COVID-19, many local independent craft breweries are being forced to shut down their taprooms. This is resulting in layoffs and reduced hours for taproom employees including bartenders, brewers, and servers. These unavoidable circumstances are causing hardships and turmoil for craft brewery employees across the nation.
Our mission will continue to be providing clean water to those in need! What we are experiencing today, the unknown and fear, many across the globe experience every single day with water-borne diseases that endanger their loved ones. However, DLTG believes partnerships are a two-way street! During these unprecedented times, we would like to extend our support to the industry that has continually supported our mission.
Those who want to help us make an impact can go to www.drinklocalthinkglobal.org to donate and support the craft beer industry employees in need of assistance at this time. All donations made to the This One’s For You Campaign will go directly to craft brewery employees that have been nominated by their employers or peers. Craft brewery employers and employees can nominate their peers or themselves for the This One’s for You Campaign. Nominees can be any craft brewery employee that is suffering from the effects of our current national situation and meets a list of requirements (listed on our website), recipients will be selected by the DLTG team. It’s time to give back to the craft breweries that have given us so much joy over the years. For all the craft brewery employees out there, This One’s For You!
