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.
The recipient of January's Giving Tap is Girls on the Run NJ North, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization located in Sparta. Their organization provides a program, which is a physical activity-based youth development after-school program, for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. They teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. They also choose a community service project to complete so they learn that even at a young age, they can have a positive impact on their community. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. They empower girls to reach their full potential, which is reinforced by having the girls set the goal of completing a 5K and achieving it!
Girls face social pressures and conflicting messages about how they should act and who they should be. Studies show that by adolescence, a girl’s confidence drops about twice as much as a boy’s confidence. Friendships become more complicated and challenging. Girls’ perceptions of themselves and their academic ability decline as well. The Girls on the Run programming meets a critical mental health need. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, a nationwide study found that 78% of 5th through 8th-grade girls feel lonelier and more isolated since the pandemic began. Girls on the Run is working to change that.
Girls on the Run NJ North envisions a world where EVERY girl has confidence, can activate her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams!
Founded in 2011 with 58 girls, they have now grown to serve over 5,600. They never turn a girl away from their program for financial need. All scholarship requests are granted. Since their inception, they have provided over $155,000 in scholarships. In 2021, they provided $8775 in scholarships benefiting 12% of the girls who participated.
How can you get involved with Girls on the Run? They are looking for financial support, program coaches and 5K volunteers. Please visit their Instagram @GOTRNJN or Facebook Page: Girls on the Run New Jersey North!
