New Holland Brewing Company supports Samaritas as part of its Community Tap initiative

    The combination of good beer and good deeds can be powerful – just look at what New Holland and Samaritas recently did by working together for a common cause.

    New Holland recently presented a check to Samaritas for $1,305 for support as its charity partner this year.

    “Samaritas makes an impact across our community in many important ways to the New Holland family,” says Brett VanderKamp, president and owner. “Our team understands the need for the community to rally around vulnerable kids, families and seniors.”

    As a way to help promote the good works Samaritas offers throughout the Lower Peninsula, New Holland also featured the organization as its community partner by having servers wear Samaritas T-shirts and buttons and featuring a huge banner promoting the faith-based human social services agency.

    New Holland Brewing Company has been a craft brewer since 1997. New Holland Brewing believes the art of craft lives in fostering rich experiences for customers. Recognized for its creativity and artistry, the company’s mission is to improve the lives of craft consumers.

    New Holland brews and distills in Holland and Grand Rapids, with retail spaces in both locales. The company employs more than 400 people and sells its beer and spirits in 38 states and four countries.

    Samaritas has been one of the state’s largest faith-based nonprofits in Michigan since 1934. Samaritas serves people of all ages and backgrounds including providing resettlement services for New Americans, adoption and foster care, and at-home services, and residential communities for seniors and persons with disabilities, through assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care. Affordable living residential communities also are available for independent seniors, families and persons with disabilities.
