Have a Beer, Help Your Community Saturday in Dubuque
Help Local People with urgent Needs.
Resources Unite has joined forces with Gary Dolphin’s Iron Bar, and 7 Hills Brewing Company in Dubuque's Millwork District to raise funds for local individuals or families who have urgent needs.
All day on Saturday January 23rd Gary Dolphin’s Iron Bar at 333 East 10th Street, and 7 Hills Brewing Company at 1085 Washington Street, will donate $1 from each beer purchased. Both places will open at 11am on Saturday.
Donations can be directed to the Resources Unite website and their PayPal link: www.resourcesunite.com.
All money raised at Resources Unite or at Dolph’s and 7 Hills will go directly to these individuals/families:
- There is a family that consists of a single mom and 2 children, both children go to high school and one has a disability. Mom is disabled as well and has been struggling to catch up with her electric bill.
- There is an elderly woman that Resources Unite has in a motel right now because of a fire she experienced in her home recently. She will be in a motel until her apartment is repaired and she is worried about paying for the motel moving forward.
- A woman stopped into Resources Unite in the past week sharing that she was fleeing an abusive relationship and is afraid for her and her children. Resources Unite was able to get them into a shelter but they continue to struggle with food and are going to need help with a deposit once they find a place to live.
- A mom and dad are asking for help with their rent. Dad was recently laid off from a local factory and mom stays home with four children. Dad has been donating plasma and working through Express and Sedona but they continue to struggle.
Resources Unite also works closely with Lincoln Elementary and donates hats, gloves, coats and winter boots for children in need at the school. Any donations of children’s winter clothing can be dropped off at Gary Dolphin’s Iron Bar, or 7 Hills Brewing Company.
