We at Sun King Brewery believe that commitment to the community is a year-round responsibility, although, we have a special place in our hearts for projects we support to during the holiday season. We encourage our amazing patrons and friends to join us in supporting these great causes!
Breakfast with Santa:
The YMCA at the Athenaeum plans a magic morning for families from local shelters, missions, and community centers. All participating families are invited to attend based on their current circumstances. On December 10th, the invited guests will enjoy a breakfast consisting of eggs, pancakes, sausage, fruit, and all the other fixins’. While musicians, actors, and artists entertain the kids, their parents can “shop” for gifts. The children are also giving the opportunity to “shop” for their parents. The morning culminates in a visit from Santa himself.
If you would like to support this magical morning, you can purchase gifts by clicking here. Gifts purchased this way will be mailed directly to the YMCA.
Elf volunteers are also needed. Inquiries about volunteering, click here.
Holiday Cheer with a local IPS school:
The benefiting school is an elementary school in the IPS district serving kiddos grades K through 6th grade. The school is located on the near west side of Indianapolis in the Haughville neighborhood.
Sun King’s involvement with this school is largely stems from the food pantry that operates at the school in conjunction with the Junior League of Indianapolis and Gleaners Food Bank. The food pantry serves over 100 families at the school who are otherwise unable to provide an efficient food source to their family. The pantry, located in the basement of the school, makes it very difficult to efficiently transfer the multiple pallets of food that Gleaners delivers monthly. SKB’s logistics team comes in to help with that by bringing the dollies and helping transfer the food downstairs.
Each year Sun King helps support some holiday fun at Stephen Foster by collecting money through our December tasting room donation jar, designated December Growler Fill Friday donations, and the generous support and donations from our staff! School staff selects the families that are in the most need and invites them to come shopping at the school’s Holiday Cheers event. Here, the parents get to pick out and wrap holiday presents for their children so they can have a magical holiday season. Sun King’s support is the only funding for this event and provides holiday awesome-ness for a lot of families at the school. Our ability to do this is rooted in the amazing patrons that we are so pleased to serve. We recently had our Growler Fill Friday collection date on December 2nd, but the donation buckets will continue to collect for the rest of December.
Thank you to all the people that support us throughout the year and know that your support is what makes these amazing programs happen.
