Flying Dog To Rebuild Baltimore House for Habitat for Humanity During Baltimore Beer Week

From their press release:

During this year’s Baltimore Beer Week, Flying Dog Brewery is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake to build a house in the Jefferson Street neighborhood [east of Johns Hopkins Hospital] on October 7.

“The reason we’re doing the build during Baltimore Beer Week is to utilize the exposure and momentum of the week to promote such a great cause for the community,” Flying Dog VP of Marketing Ben Savage said.

After the build, the Flying Dog team is closing the day with a Habitat fundraiser at Langermann’s in Canton from 6 to 10 pm. Flying Dog hopes to not only raise money for Habitat throughout the night, but also work with the organization to thank their Red Hat volunteers and AmeriCorps members for their leadership and countless hours of service.

“We couldn’t complete our mission without our Red Hat leaders and AmeriCorps team, “said Madeline Manlove, Executive and Development Associate for Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake. “Their dedication to Habitat extends the reach of our staff, enabling us to serve more families, build more houses, and host more volunteers each day.”

Langermann’s has agreed to donate $1 from all Flying Dog pints purchased that night to Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake. Flying Dog will also buy the first beer for any Red Hat volunteer, AmeriCorps, or person who donates or signs up to volunteer with Habitat that night.
