The Stevens Point Fire Fighters Local 484 took in a cash donation last week from Central Waters Brewing Co.
Anlleo Mollica, vice president of brewery, handed over a check for $5,000 to the firefighters union.
President Justin Thomson said members of the Local 484 were at the brewery in January to help Central Waters celebrate its 17th anniversary. The donation, which goes straight to the Local 484 Charitable Foundation, was the brewery’s way of thanking the department.
Thomson said the foundation uses the money to benefit local youth sports teams and event, and charities to include Big Brothers Big Sisters, Stevens Point Youth Baseball, Stevens Point Girls Softball, MDA, Operation Warm, Honor Flight, Operation Bootstrap.
“A big THANK YOU to Central Waters Brewing Co. for their generosity and support to the community,” Thomson said in an email to the media.
