Community Involvement Information 

  • Buoy Beer Company believes in the importance of having a positive impact within the local community.  A great way to accomplish that is by volunteering at various local non-profit organizations.   
  • Throughout the year multiple volunteer events are organized for Buoy employees to participate in.  No special skills are needed, or minimum time required, just a willingness to get involved. 

There are many benefits to volunteering: 

  • A deeper connection with other community members. 
  • The opportunity to learn new skills that can improve a person’s self-worth, as well as being fun and fulfilling. 
  • It has been well documented that volunteering can reduce stress, improve mood and enhance overall health. 
  • Recognition and perks based on amount of volunteer time. 
  • Information about each volunteer event will be posted on the Buoy Beer website (employee updates page), and on the Bustling Buoy Facebook page.  Sign up sheets will be posted on the “White Board” in the back by the brewery.
