Oh hey guys! Happy Thursday! We’re doubly excited about today, not just because it’s #FridayEve, but also because it’s Trek Together day! What in the world is Trek Together? I’m so glad you asked.
Trek Together is the program that we’ve created to be a vehicle for good in the community. We’re partnering with local community organizations and we’re giving back. We’ve set it up so that an interested organization contacts us through our website by filling out this form. We review the requests, and then establish contact with the interested party. Trek hosts the event from 5pm till 9pm on a Thursday evening. The partner organization sets up in our lobby, and brings information about their mission in the community. They chat with customers and enjoy social time in our amazing taproom. Trek donates $1 from every single pint sold during the event to the organization. It’s a win-win-win. We’re able to bring attention to so many amazing things happening in our community, bring in new people to our taproom, and raise money that does good things in Licking County.
We’re doing two Trek Together events this month, and the first one is TONIGHT. We’re partnering with Newark Ohio Pride Coalition for this event. Their mission statement is:
Newark Ohio Pride Coalition connects the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning community and allies to foster diversity and inclusiveness in Licking County by providing education, resources, outreach, and support to empower all.
Newark Pride Coalition is going to use the proceeds from tonight’s event to help fund their monthly LGBTQ Teen Group, which focuses on acceptance and positive social interaction and includes a free hot meal!
Later this month (Thursday January 31st) we’re partnering with the Licking County Food Pantry Network. For this amazing organization, in addition to our $1 per pint donation, we’re hoping to also do a canned food drive. There are SO many hungry families in our community, and the Licking County Food Pantry Network works to help ensure that these families get access to food.
We’re hoping to keep these Trek Together events happening often! Please help us to spread the word, and connect us with more awesome people. The way we look at it, we’re all in this together, and the more we can help each other out, the better off we’ll be. Trek is committed to making the world a better place, and we’re doing it one beer at a time. Come and join the journey. We promise, it’s worth the Trek.
Cheers friends, we’ll see you tonight!
