Minuteman Press in Buffalo announces the Give a Pint to the Front Line initiative, a charity being run through its website. Through donations, the Buffalo print shop purchases gift cards from participating breweries and delivers them to local hospitals to distribute to their healthcare workers. The gift cards can be used on to-go orders for beer, food, or merchandise, or in person when the taprooms reopen.
Interested parties can purchase the following items:
- A custom T-shirt with $6 from each purchase going to buying a pint for a local healthcare worker
- A hoodie with $12 from each purchase going to buying a pint for a local healthcare worker
- $6 pints for a local healthcare worker
Wes Froebel, the owner of Minuteman Press in Buffalo, says, “I lead with community first because I am aware of people’s struggles and know we are in a position to help. When COVID-19 hit, and our breweries, restaurants, and small business owners were closed, I understood their struggle at the same time that I admired the healthcare workers putting themselves at risk on behalf of all of us.”
He adds, “It supports the frontline workers and encourages more buying within our local economy.”
This initiative comes after Minuteman Press Buffalo launched its Bounce Back efforts, helping local businesses stay open through free resources and printing solutions.
