A compassionate brewing company in Michigan just paid off a school district’s entire lunch debt
A lot of folks across industries are talking about corporate citizenship. What does it mean to be a good corporate citizen?
Good corporate citizens value, monitor, and beneficially affect communities and societies at large. And we have a perfect example of what a good corporate citizen is – The Mitten Brewing Company – Northport.
The Mitten Brewing Company just paid off one school district’s entire school lunch debt.
The Northport location of the brewery announced on Tuesday that it had eliminated the debt at Suttons Bay Public Schools. The brewery said on their Facebook page, they were able to pay off the debt thanks to the “amazing patronage” in the area.
“It has been our best summer yet at Mitten Northport, and every day we are grateful to be part of this community,” the brewery said.
The company donated $2,700 to the Northern Michigan school district.
The Mitten Brewery is Grand Rapids-based, but it opened the Northport location in 2016. It also has a taproom in Saugatuck.
“Cheers, and thank you for welcoming us to this beautiful peninsula we now call home,” said the Mitten Brewing Company.
Their face book post about the donation read: “Friends, It has been our best summer yet at Mitten Northport, and e… very day we are grateful to be part of this community. Thanks to your amazing patronage, we have decided to pay it forward and eliminate all student lunch debt at Suttons Bay Public Schools.”
