December 6, 2011 – Diamond Knot Brewing Co. kicks off their 2nd Annual “Coats for Kids” donation program to benefit the children of Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County.
“As a local business, it is important for us to support our community. We challenge our customers to help us continue that support and beat last year’s donation,” said Bob Maphet, President. Last year Diamond Knot was able to donate over $2100 to help the children of domestic violence stay warm.
Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County is a private, non-profit organization that provides a safe and secure emergency shelter while providing services for victims of domestic abuse. Most of the women and children staying at the shelter arrive with very little and often without the basic necessities. As we have already experienced, this winter is going to be a wet one and in an effort to help these families, Diamond Knot Brewing Company is collecting donations to purchase warm coats and clothing. Our goal is to raise enough money that each child staying in the shelter has a warm coat and hat this winter. It does not take much; just a few dollars can go a very long way to help a child in need.
“This initiative is a great opportunity to continue our history of giving back to our local community which has supported us for over seventeen years”, said Pat Ringe, Brewmaster.
To make your donation go even further, Diamond Knot Brewing Co. will match all donations dollar for dollar. Donations will be accepted until December 21st at all Diamond Knot locations in Mukilteo and Camano Island, Washington. Help make a child’s holidays special and to keep them warm this winter.
