Happy New Year, everybody!
Today we are excited to announce a new program at Fair State, a collaborative effort between the brewery, our member-owners, and the community that we call home.
Introducing Fair State Cooperates. Every month we will be teaming up with a different local organization, as selected by our membership. Starting today, $1 of every growler sale will be donated to our featured partner organization of the month. At some point during the month we will facilitate a volunteer opportunity for our member-owners to help out as best the partner organization sees fit. A chance to put down the pint, and get the hands a little dirty.
To kick things off, our first partner is the Animal Humane Society of Minnesota. Every growler of Fair State beer that you purchase in January will help to fund the important work that they do with our fuzzy friends. In lieu of a large volunteer event, the Animal Humane Society has asked us to run a drive to collect much needed items for the animals. This could include anything from leashes and toys, to treats and cleaning supplies. There is an extensive list of super helpful items (much you’d never think of) available here. Please take a look and see what you can do to help. We will be collecting these items in the taproom throughout the month of January.
For more information, please visit the links below or stop by the taproom. We have a variety of materials on hand. If you are interest in getting more involved with the Animal Humane Society, there are opportunities for individuals to volunteer and become important contributors to the lives of these animals.
Stay tuned for more events and opportunities with Fair State Cooperates. And thank you for being such an awesome and supportive community! We are excited for all the good things to come.
Last October at our annual meeting, member-owners created a list of organizations that they would like to work with for fundraising and volunteer initiatives in the year to come. If you have any questions or wish to nominate an organization, please contact our member coordinator Davin Haukebo-Bol at firstname.lastname@example.org
