Batavia Brewery Gets $10,000 Sustainability, Well-Being Grant

I have to give a huge shout out to Sturdy Shelter Brewing in Batavia! They just announced they are one of 500 small business around the country that were awarded a $10,000 grant from American Express and Main Street America!

The Backing Small Business grant money will be used to install water bottle filling stations, purchase an AED defibrillator, train staff on AED usage, and offer CPR and first aide training to staff and costumers free of charge.

According to the grant’s website:

In partnership with American Express, the Backing Small Businesses grant program supports economically vulnerable and under-resourced small businesses with community reach and/​or cultural significance. This year, eligible small business owners could apply for $10,000 grants for projects that grow or improve their businesses by building community, supporting their economic viability, or bolstering meaningful change.

Congrats to Sturdy Shelter on this community-centered achievement!
