We feel a strong sense of responsibility to use our business as a platform to give back to the community that supports us. Through a combination of non-profit partnerships and sustainability initiatives, we intend to be a force for good in our community. As a young, growing company, we love working with small, local non-profits and grassroots organizations that are looking to increase awareness in addition to raising funds. See our community partners below.
BeLoved Asheville is a non-profit organization with innovative solutions to some of the toughest challenges we face as a community, such as houselessness. In October 2020, we hosted “Socktoberfest'' and collected supplies such as socks, camping gear, blankets, and essentials needed to get ready for the upcoming cold months. Through the combination of customer monetary donations and our $1 per flight sold initiative, BeLoved Asheville was able to purchase 50 cold-weather tents for people in need.
Friends of Madison County Animals works to reduce the number of unwanted animals and increase their well-being through a number of area wide programs, such as: Vaccine Clinics, Spay-Neuter, Pet Pantry, and “Chain Free Madison County”. In February 2021 we hosted a two-day Valentine’s Day event called “Furr-ever Valentine”, where in exchange for a donation, guests were able to get a family portrait taken with their pets in our tasting room. With the help of those donations, we were able to give over $600 to FOMCA to use toward those programs.
Babies Need Bottoms is an organization that provides resources to help parents in WNC that are experiencing diaper need. In May 2021, we collected diapering supplies from community members and donated $1 for each full pour of beer sold through the month. With the monetary donations we were able to give BNB, they purchased 6,578 diapers for their diaper bank, and received almost 1,000 diapers from donations from the community.
Youth OUTright’s mission is to engage and support LGBTQIA+ youth ages 11-20 in WNC to be confident, resilient and compassionate community members. In honor of Pride Month for June 2021, we sold rainbow Ginger’s Revenge tote bags and donated 100% of the profits to YO. We also held a Meet & Greet with their staffers and the community to engage and learn more, where we donated $1 for each full pour sold that day. For the sales of the tote bags combined with donations to the organization, they’ve received over $1,000.
