We usually run the Free Rare Beer drive as a school supplies initiative, and while we're definitely keeping that going (we just wrapped up a month-long Mighty Writers Fundraiser in September and we have a neighborhood elementary school lined up for November), we figure there's enough love in the City of Brotherly Love to go around.
There are tens of thousands of people in Puerto Rico in dire need of supplies (see the list of recommendations below) following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, and we want to join together with our friends, neighbors, and fellow beer geeks to round up some goods to ship out.
So, we're trading free beer and good vibes in exchange for your donation of supplies.
The rare beer will be a double dry hopped and fruited grisette, and here are the supplies we're looking for: (The government of Puerto Rico includes all these supplies in their guide to donation and raising awareness, HERE.)
First Aid Supplies
Feminine hygiene products
Baby and adult pain relief medicine
Stomach and Diarrhea relief medicine
Canned and dry pet food
Ground fault protectors
All donated items must be non-perishable, not second-hand, nor contain liquids. Open or unsealed donations of food or hygiene supplies will not be accepted.
