Lone Star Brewing: Contributing to Texas Communities for Hurricane Harvey Relief

By  | 

Joining their Texas brothers and sisters in what’s sure to be an overwhelming outpouring of support and relief efforts, Lone Star Brewing has joined in Hurricane Harvey support initiatives and is welcoming others in Texas and the U.S. to do the same. Establishing the Lone Star Beer Disaster Relief Fund with an initial seed contribution of $25,000, the company’s goal is to raise $250,000 in monetary aid by the end of 2017 for those hardest-hit by the storm’s impact.

In addition to its initial contribution, Lone Star and its parent Pabst Brewing Company have both pledged matching employee contributions, in a 2:1 ratio, up to an additional $20,000. In an effort to make the fund donor-friendly, the company has also launched a donation-by-text option, with minimum contributions set at $10 by texting GIVE HOPE to 80100. Those that aren’t text-savvy and prefer to go online to do so, can also make a donation to the fund by visiting their website at www.globalgiving.org/lonestargivesback. All contributions will be forwarded directly to front line charities providing direct assistance and local aid to communities affected by the hurricane.

In conjunction with this initiative, Lone Star and Pabst are also in the process of coordinating on-the-ground assistance wherever it’s most required. Pabst employees can sign up for volunteer opportunities throughout the coming weeks and months, and the Lone Star community engagement team will be developing local support events throughout the state of Texas, including working with distributors, establishments, and venues that sell their beer, retailers, musicians, and other partners. The companies are also leveraging their national resources to enlist additional help in order to encourage and engage with respect to ongoing Harvey relief efforts.
