Beginning January 2018, Starr Hill is donating 25¢ for every case of beer sold in Virginia of our top flagship brands.
ForKids was born in Norfolk’s Ocean View neighborhood almost 30 years ago when parishioners at Holy Trinity Catholic Church discovered families coming to their food pantry were sleeping on church grounds and local beaches. Holy Trinity partnered with 12 other Ocean View churches to found “Homeless Haven,” incorporated in the City of Norfolk on May 16, 1988. The agency’s sole program, “an emergency shelter facility which will serve the homeless,” called Haven House, opened the very next year on D View Avenue and still provides assistance for over 200 people each year.
Today, ForKids is one of the largest providers for homeless families in Virginia, touching over 47,500 lives annually through its holistic housing programs and extended services for families.
With a mission of breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families and children, ForKids is more than a safety net. Our full spectrum service model simultaneously identifies the compound root causes of each family’s homelessness and improves mental health, education, employment and personal obstacles with supportive services culminating in self-reliant families with permanent housing.
Donations will be based on 25¢ per case equivalents of beer each quarter, including both packaged and draft beer
sold across all of Starr Hill’s markets throughout Virginia.
Based on 2017 sales of the featured brands, Beers With Benefits is estimated to raise over $25,000
in donations to local charities in 2018.
Beers With Benefits was born out of the success of Starr Hill Brewery’s
Crozet-based Tap Room’s Cheers for Charity program.
Since 2015, one dollar for every pint sold at this location has been donated
to dozens of non-profit organizations based in Central Virginia.
