POTTSVILLE, Pa., — D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery, has announced its donation of $50,000 to Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) to support programs that enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Yuengling awarded Team RWB the donation through its Lagers for Heroes program, which enables the brewery to support nonprofits and advance programs that positively impact veterans and their families.
“We are thrilled to announce Team RWB as a new partner for our Lagers for Heroes program,” said Debbie Yuengling, 6th Generation Brewer, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “Team RWB offers invaluable resources and support services for veterans, and we are proud to support an organization that shares our same commitment to our nation’s military.”
The donation will further Team RWB’s commitment to creating quality relationships and experiences for veterans that contribute to life satisfactions and overall well-being, including fitness activities, social gatherings and community service.
“We are extremely honored by the generous support of Yuengling’s Lagers for Heroes program, said John Pinter,
Executive Director, Team RWB. “This donation will enable us to significantly expand our programs and impact the lives of veterans and their families.”
Yuengling also supported Team RWB’s Old Glory Relay, a 4,300-mile journey where veterans and supporters carry the American flag across the country to honor and connect those who served our country. During the Pennsylvania leg of Old Glory Relay, Jen Yuengling raised the flag and ran a portion of the course with Team RWB to support our nation’s veterans.
Yuengling’s Lagers for Heroes program runs year round and supports veterans and their families through charities like Team RWB, TAPS, Operation Gratitude, and other local organizations.
