Tallgrass Brewery Hosts Weekend Campaign

By  | 

Tallgrass Brewing Company traded beer for toys at its monthly tour Saturday afternoon.

Area residents flocked to the brewery bearing gifts to donate to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots campaign and received a free holiday tasting glass and samples of Tallgrass Beer.

"We wanted to do something to give back," said Office Manager Barbara Saverino. "We don’t do a lot of charity type events and things in town. So we just wanted to try something out that would give back to the community. We love the kids and the families that it helps out doing the toys for tots."

The toys will be given to the local chapter of Toys for Tots. Tallgrass also donated 10% of the day’s proceeds to benefit the campaign.
