DOING GOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY

Giving back to our local community is central to our mission at Big Grove Brewery. We strive to be intentional with our “good giving” and have committed the majority of our charitable efforts to focus on three core categories -- Trees, Trails, & Water: The work to enhance our recreational green spaces, benefiting both our health and well-being and reviving our environment. Equity & Equality: Working towards a diverse and equitable community while being a good human to other humans. Our Backyard: Supporting local organizations that work to make our Johnson County community a better place to live, thrive, and have opportunity.

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

HOUSE INTO HOMES

“We are thrilled to be selected as one of Big Grove’s community partners this year! We know there are many organizations doing critical work in our area, and are honored to have been chosen. This grant will enable us to improve our operations so we can more quickly and efficiently serve the households that are referred to us. When we can pick up bed and furniture donations quickly, we can more fully furnish more homes. Recently, we furnished a home for five children and their mother, who had experienced domestic violence and were starting from scratch. We provided beds for all in the household, plus nightstands and bedside lamps, desks, and dressers. We also provided furniture the living room, and place to eat, and all those smaller items like towels, pots and pans, and art for the walls, that turn houses into homes.”

INSIDE OUT RE-ENTRY PROGRAM

“Inside Out Reentry Community is grateful to be chosen by Big Grove as a recipient of the Big Grove for Good Grant. We are excited for this partnership and the opportunity to share our work with the broader community. This grant allows Inside Out Reentry to provide the much-needed services of supporting individuals as they transition back to our community after incarceration. Returning to the community after incarceration is challenging. This donation and partnership with Big Grove will provide Inside Out with resources to maintain and increase our services to formerly incarcerated individuals in Johnson County. This donation means so much to us to have a partner like Big Grove in the community that is committed to making sure all our neighbors are welcomed and supported.
