Four Peaks For Teachers 2017 Fundraising Begins

‘Four Peaks 4 Teachers’ Campaign Launches Statewide on June 19

Tempe, Ariz. (June 19, 2017) – Four Peaks Brewing Co.’s popular “Four Peaks 4 Teachers” classroom supply fundraiser is expanding statewide after six years of providing thousands of Valley teachers with classroom items. With help from partner organizations and fundraising efforts, Four Peaks will purchase school supplies to fill boxes for teachers in Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff. Teachers are invited to pick up vouchers beginning July 4 and redeem them for supply boxes from July 24 – July 28.

Four Peaks’ commitment to teachers goes back to 2010 when brewery co-founder Jim Scussel learned of local teachers’ needs for basic school supplies from his own kids and customers at Four Peaks 8th St. Brewery, many of whom were teachers at Arizona State University. In an effort to help, Four Peaks asked customers, staff and family to donate supplies for teachers to pick-up at the brewery. This year there will be five supply box pick-up locations across Arizona.

“When we founded Four Peaks Brewing Co. twenty years ago our goal was to bring people together and our proudest moments are when we all come together,” Four Peaks co-founder Jim Scussel said. “We’re excited to expand ‘Four Peaks 4 Teachers’ outside of Phoenix this year to assist teachers across Arizona, and we thank our partners and everyone who has helped provide our teachers with much-needed support.”

Now in its seventh year, with support from Shamrock Farms, Smashburger, Hensley Beverage Co., Alphagraphics, and Treasures 4 Teachers, Four Peaks will provide boxes of classroom items to teachers across Arizona.

The fundraising campaign will run from Monday, June 19 through Friday, July 28 and includes:

–All proceeds from the Four Peaks 4 Teachers Lunchbox / Beer Pairing on Saturday, June 24 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Four Peaks 8th Street Brewery. Tickets are available for purchase HERE and include a vintage metal lunchbox.
