Hello! Happy September!
I realize it’s been a minute since I’ve written a blog post. I’m hoping they will become more consistent again as the world thinks about getting back into something of a “new normal”. *Hold please while I knock on ALL THE WOOD that I can find in the house*. This summer I also transitioned into a new job which allows me more time to work at Trek as well.
The first thing that I want to tell you about this month actually starts TONIGHT. It’s our weekly Trek Together program. For the month of September, we partnered with Hospice of Central Ohio. Hospice is one of those places that you don’t think about until you need it. And then, you’re so very glad it exists.
My family got to experience hospice when my dad passed away in 2002. It was easily the hardest thing I have EVER had to endure, and hospice made it just a little easier. My entire family came to town to be with us as my dad passed and hospice helped us find a way to accommodate everyone, even helped us as we cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner at the hospital. Recently, John’s grandma passed away and hospice was instrumental in her care as well.
Hospice is just one of those programs where everyone has a story. They come to help at the most awful times of life, and they do everything they can to make it a teensy bit better.
Starting tonight and through the rest of September, we’ll be giving 10% of every check from 4pm to 8pm on Thursdays to Hospice. It’s the EASIEST way to give back. All you do is come in and drink good drinks, eat great food, maybe even pick up some awesome new merch. We’ll do the rest. It’s our way to help change the world, one beer at a time.
Join us. We’ll see you here. It’s #WorthTheTrek
