The Giving Tap

 

The Giving Tap is about connectivity.

Each month we feature one of our handcrafts or guest beer on The Giving Tap

and we donate one dollar from each draft sold during the month

to a local non-profit or charitable organization.

It is our hope that you learn something new in and about your community each month.

We hope we inspire you to get involved and volunteer time and/or services.

Consider partnering with an additional monetary donation.

But at the very least, have a beer! We look forward to pouring your

very own rewarding Giving Tap selection! Cheers!

Must be 21 or older with valid identification to order alcohol. Always drink responsibly.

Our new Giving Tap recipient is on a mission, a mission to enhance the lives of those faced with intellectual and developmental disabilities! This mission is not only for individuals but their families, too. The organization that we are sponsoring this month is Peace By Piece NJ, Inc., a DDD-approved 501c3 non-profit. They aim to provide lifelong support and services through a community center, as well as housing options, that will promote lasting friendships and a superior quality of life for its members.

Peace By Piece is fundraising for a training kitchen to be installed at their community center. Currently, they have a budget to rent a church kitchen for two hours a week, however, their members would love more time than that! With the time they do have in the church kitchen, members cook meals for the homeless, make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the unsheltered, stock the food pantries, and learn key life skills! Once their training kitchen is installed and members are fully educated in kitchen safety skills, they will be one step closer to independence and self-sufficiency!

Let's help them on their way to independence and self-sufficiency! Enjoy a Giving Tap beer and we will donate $1.00 to Peace By Piece for each draft sold in May! Must be 21 or older to purchase and consume alcohol.

Peace By Piece has another fundraising event on Saturday, September 7th at Sparta Lanes. They are looking for bowlers and sponsors, and if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please email mike@peacebypiecenj.org for more information.

March 2024
Handcraft: San Francisco Knights by Magnify Brewing
Recipient: Found In Thyme Farm Sanctuary, Inc.

Square Logo.png

March: the month of Daylight Savings, the Vernal Equinox, and Easter, or should we say all things spring? Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, and it is spring on the farm, too! Waddling ducks, hopping bunnies, fluffy chicks, jumping goats, and frolicking horses come to mind!

This brings us to our March Giving Tap recipient! Once again, we are proud to sponsor Found In Thyme, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit farm sanctuary in Wantage that specializes in welcoming disabled, neglected, senior, and special needs barnyard animals! Found In Thyme Farm Sanctuary was co-founded by Stephanie and Trevor McPherson in 2017 and their mission is to provide every animal placed on their farm with a soft and loving place to land, ensuring that they receive the proper care and treatment that they deserve. Found In Thyme exists to ensure that no animal is denied a life with quality.

Their mission is, no doubt, commendable and honorable, but what's involved in supporting the mission involves hard daily work, dedication, and a lot of love. Sadly, that is not enough though. Today's inflation and rising cost of goods create a major obstacle. The price of hay has increased dramatically and it is their largest financial burden. Then there are food costs on top of the hay, not to mention farrier costs, veterinary care, supplements, and medicine. As if that is not enough, there are other concerns like repairs, fencing, stalls, and pens.

Found In Thyme has had to make the difficult decision in the past to not accept any more animals because they have to care for the ones they have within their means. From the pigs to the goats to the horses and all of their feathered friends, these are the animals on their farm that currently need their attention, but they would like to help any farm animal out of a dire situation without worrying about how they are going to manage how to do that.

Found In Thyme, Inc. will receive $1.00 from every draft sold on the Giving Tap and we currently have a beer from Magnify Brewing, Fairfield, NJ, on that tap. It is San Francisco Knights, a California Common featuring notes of biscuit, toasted bread, and herbal nuances from the addition of both northern brewer and fuggle hops. It is filtered to give you a very clean experience with an AbV of 5%. Must be 21 or older to purchase and consume alcohol.

If you'd like to help a little more, please consider:
⁃ A monetary donation: Every little bit adds up! A $5.00 donation is hay for ONE horse for ONE day! Monetary donations also help veterinarian expenses because older animals require more frequent checkups. Their preferred payment methods are: Website (https://www.foundinthyme.org), Venmo (foundinthyme), or PayPal (foundinthyme@gmail.com)

⁃ Feed donations: Their entire sanctuary is fed through Brodhecker Farm in Hampton Township and their horses and pigs flourish with the grain from there. If you would like to donate feed, you can call Brodhecker Farm at (973) 383-3592 and reserve feed for their next pickup.

⁃ Tractor Supply gift cards: Tractor Supply offers the farm a lot of staples and gift cards are useful for supplements like beet pulp, alfalfa, wheat bran, weight boosters, dewormers, etc.

⁃ Get involved: If you're looking for a way to help your community, please consider the sanctuary. They will be hosting farm tours so check their website or Facebook for more information, and if you’re looking to host a fundraiser, please reach out to them!

The League of Women Voters of Sussex Highlands (LWVSH) is an all-volunteer nonpartisan, non-profit organization that works to empower voters and defend democracy. They help democracy work by protecting voting rights and encouraging robust election participation. Elections and voting are core concerns for the League and for more than 70 years, the LWVSH has been active in our local community. Some of the local activities they participate in are:

- Voter outreach and registration opportunities held at local grocery stores and community events.

-In partnership with the Sussex County Board of Election, they organize voter feedback and collect information about election processes. New in 2024 is our "Energizing Young Voters" program which will bring the voting process into local high schools. It will allow young people the opportunity to see how to vote from beginning to end.

-Voter participation through candidate forums and debates. The LWVSH does not endorse or promote individual candidates but enables opportunities for candidates to showcase their platform. The LWVSH has held debates for Sussex County township races, Boards of Education, and County Commissioner (formally Freeholder). The debate moderators are trained and experienced LWV members.

-Two scholarship opportunities are offered annually to a Sussex County graduate. The 2023 recipients were Annika Noel from Sparta High School and Lauren Reese from High Point High School. This year's essay question has been distributed to local school districts and they are looking forward to reading them.

Anyone interested in becoming a member or looking for more information can find the League of Women Voters Sussex Highlands (LWVSH) through their website: (https://my.lwv.org/new-jersey/sussex-highlands).

Lastly, have a beer from our Giving Tap because The League of Women Voters of Sussex Highlands will receive $1.00 for each draft sold on that tap during February! The beer on tap is Dark Lager from Birdsmouth Beer, a microbrewery in Oceanport, NJ. Its malty backbone has a slight hint of roast, but don't be fooled by the darker color because this beer goes down easily and pairs extremely well with food. Must be 21 or older to purchase alcohol, but only 18 years old to vote!

Handcraft: Dark Lager by Birdsmouth Beer
Recipient: Winter4Kids

It's winter and the recipient of January's Giving Tap is Winter4Kids, located at the Campus of The National Winter Activity Center, in Vernon, NJ. Some people may remember the location from many years ago as the old “Hidden Valley” ski resort. Winter4Kids began in 2015, and they are a 501c3 nonprofit, youth-serving organization.

Winter4Kids creates opportunities for meaningful change. Through outdoor activities and program enrichment, Winter4Kids helps children build skills for life. The life-changing outcomes are that children develop better attitudes towards Self (self-esteem, confidence, resiliency), Health (physical activity, mental, nutritional), Opportunity (sports, academic, life), Mastery (being one’s personal best) and a love of the Outdoors!

At the Winter4Kids Campus, all children are welcomed and embraced as their own authentic selves, and where they can always feel a sense of belonging in a safe space. Winter4Kids exists to create healthy lifestyles for youth, and in the wintertime, provide opportunities through its First Tracks program to be active and healthy by learning snow skills, namely skiing, snowboarding and cross-country. Nutritious, homemade meals, snow clothing and equipment, and program enrichment are included. Life skills and core values are the heart of the curriculum, with mentorship as a critical component. Their dedicated staff and volunteers connect with kids on many levels as they share their vast backgrounds and impart to the kids that they have opportunities in life that they did not think they could have or have access to. As many kids are subjected to traumatic life experiences such as isolation, disconnectedness, bullying, and food insecurity, potentially leading them towards a negative life pathway, Winter4Kids delivers programs that avoid negative behaviors by young people, expand choices and opportunities, and provide sustainable access to outdoor, positive activities. Also, Winter4Kids has a competitive Athletics program and their W4K team participates in the New York State Ski Racing Association!

During the summer, they continue to provide a fun, welcoming and safe place for kids to come and stay active. They offer a weekly camp with unique activities such as archery, biathlon, mountain trail biking, orienteering, hydroponics and culinary, robotics, hiking and arts and crafts. Nutritious meals are always included, and kids get to make healthy meal choices and learn about the benefits of healthy foods as they make kid-friendly dishes using ingredients from their hydroponic garden.

To learn more about Winter4Kids and inquire about their programs or their volunteer opportunities, please come to Krogh's on Sunday, January 28th as we host a Dining to Donate for them! Representatives of Winter4Kids will be here for a Meet & Greet from noon-4:00 pm that day to answer any questions! Winter4Kids will also receive a portion of the day's sales to help support programs for kids!

Lastly, have a beer from our Giving Tap because Winter4Kids will receive $1.00 for each draft sold on that tap during January!

Ginnie’s House in Newton is our non-profit Giving Tap recipient for December!

What do they do:
They coordinate services for victims of abuse and they work closely with the prosecutor’s office, law enforcement, and Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P), bringing all of the services under one roof.

They provide a home-like location in which a child can explain what happened in a comfortable environment. They are able to help children through the healing process of many forms of trauma, not just abuse.

Ginnie's House operates partially through grant funding so they rely on monetary donations in order to keep their array of free custom services and child-specific therapies in place. Their monetary donation link is available here or through our Instagram's bio.
