Hey Y’all! Rikki here again!
Ellensburg is a super-rad-tastic town, as most of you already know. When someone needs a helping hand, we have proven time and again how teamwork can make a difference. In the past, Iron Horse Brewery has teamed up with other local businesses with the intent of making an impact on our community, by finding one or two or three families who need extra help during the holiday season…and then aiming big to try to make a difference. We have paid utilities, fixed cars, and helped to furnish a home. The biggest year we have had raised $4500 in goods and services for the families. As a slightly competitive person (go #teamhighfive!), I think we can beat that! And we have already begun. Remember getting squished into the new pub on Saturday the 2nd? That day alone, we raised $549 for the Cozy Community Fund. Boom. And we auctioned the Cozy Sweater Cozy Koozies. You can see the making of the Koozies here on YouTube!
We think we can make this year bigger and better, with your help. If you’re a business owner, contact me (Rikki@ironhorsebrewery.com) so we can get you on board. If you want to help, donate at [ the pub ] to have funds go directly to the families selected. If you know someone who needs a hand, nominate them here, or in person at the pub. If you have items you would like to donate to the families, contact me! Want some cozy koozies for your beer? Contact me, we can work something out! If you have a theory about 6 foot tall lizard men ruling the world, contact Big Cat (Ross@ironhorsebrewery.com), he loves that stuff.
So far we have had businesses donate cash, gift cards for groceries, volunteer efforts, and advertising for our cause. And its only the 6th! The deadline for donations and nominations is December 16th, when we sit down and figure out who can benefit the most from our efforts. The following week, we will disperse those items, and have a big cozy celebration in our hearts (maybe the pub too), and collectively high five each other. Want a free high five? Please join us, and we’ll make it happen.
