WILLIAMSBURG — Alewerks Brewing Company has a special Nailed It! Sold beer and raised $ 1,500 for Habitat for Humanity.
A $ 1,500 donation will support a home built by a small business. The fundraiser is trying to raise $ 125,000, the price to build a Habitat home. This is often too big for small businesses to fully fund. The house will be built in Charles City County in 2023.
Houses built by small businesses are gradually funded by donations from several small businesses. The project was initiated by Consociate Media, which acknowledged its 10 and invested its first tranche of $ 10,000 last December.the Year of business. The home will eventually be sold to a family member of Habitat’s Home Ownership Program.
“This is a great initiative and we are pleased to contribute a bit to the goal of building a Habitat home,” said Michael Claar, COO of Alewerks. “It’s a good start. I want to do more.”
Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg have partnered with the association this spring to buy a record number of families from families considering buying their own homes and paying monthly interest-free mortgages on time. I received the application. These payments will be reinvested in the community so that more homes can be built.
Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Janet V. Green, Executive Director of Greater Williamsburg, said: “It’s very rewarding for us when a local company like Alewerks steps up to make a difference in the community where our customers live, work and play.”
Alewerks donated $ 1 to 4 packs of NailedIt! $ 1 was sold from every pint sold on the tap, and Total Wine carried a special beer. The total amount collected exceeded $ 1,400 and Alewerks rounded up to make a $ 1,500 donation.
Alewerks is one of several local companies already affiliated with Consociate Media for the project. Others include Philips Energy, Local Scoop Magazine and Williamsburg Winery.
