We’re so proud to say we have been able to distribute over $1,000 to members of our community in need. To see how your donations have helped, here is a a note from an individual from the supplier side who we were able to grant financial assistance:
“I don’t even know what to say, I am at a loss for words. This truly helps with financial stress, I have had a hell of a time with unemployment issues so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I can’t say enough about how special the craft beer/cider community is here in Portland, OR. While this is a difficult time for the industry as a whole, I wouldn’t want to be in any other. When I wrapped up work Friday March 13th (how ironic), I could not have imagined that myself and several of my friends and colleagues would have been laid off Tuesday 3/17. Stresses, anxiety, and financial hardship have been felt by many. To see a group like PDX Beer People come together and work hard to fundraise to support its members means so much. I can’t wait until we can all share a pint, or many, together at the bar top.“
Keep spreading the word so we can keep helping members of our community!
