Founders Brewing Co. partnered with the Michigan Hospitality Industry Employee Relief Fund to raise money for restaurant, bar and lodging workers who have been greatly impacted by COVID-19.
To raise money, Founders designed an exclusive line of work-from-home comfort wear, including sweatpants, sweatshirts and T-shirts, with the message “Fill the Tip Jar.”
“We just feel it’s really important that we support the folks in our home state that have taken a huge hit here,” said Dave Engbers, president and co-founder of Founders. “This is a time to come together as a community and support those people that have been so much a part of keeping business alive here in Michigan: all of the restaurant, bar and hospitality workers and owners.”
Founders also created donation bundles available for purchase through the Founders Company Store.
