Diamond Knot Brewing to Serve Dinner to Homeless on Thanksgiving at Two Locations

November 23rd, 2015 · No Comments · Washington Breweries

Cheers to Diamond Knot for embracing the spirit of Thanksgiving. They will be opening up at both the Mukilteo flagship location and the brewpub in Mountlake Terrace to serve dinner to the homeless this Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Thanks to the staff of Diamond Knot for volunteering their time to give back to the community.

Press Release:

The staff at Diamond Knot is giving back, not only with their time, but with dinner this Thanksgiving. Both Diamond Knot locations are preparing and serving an early dinner for those in need this holiday season.
“I can’t even begin to describe how proud I am of our staff,” said Andy Eason, DK’s VP of Retail. “We have more staff volunteering than we know what to do with, but this just goes to show that being able to provide Thanksgiving dinner is in line with everything we stand for. It shows what’s important to our company as a whole.”
The Brewery & Alehouse, DK’s flagship location on the Mukilteo waterfront, is opening its doors to Esther’s Place, a day center for homeless women and children in Snohomish County.
“The ladies of Esther’s Place are so very excited to be able to have a meal with their families for Thanksgiving,” said Laurie Hardie, Esther’s Place’s director. “One of the things we always say is we don’t feed them, we eat with them and Diamond Knot is providing a wonderful opportunity for not only the ladies and their families, but for the volunteers to sit with the ladies and have a wonderful holiday dinner.”
Since opening in January, Esther’s Place has helped 30 women get off the streets.  The housing crisis in Snohomish is what the organization struggles with every day they are in operation. The organization, which is an arm of the Hoff Foundation, offers a place for women and children to come to have a meal and just relax for a little while.
The Brewpub @ MLT, located in Mountlake Terrace, is opening its doors to the community’s homeless through several organizations. There are up to 100 dinners available between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. with staff on hand to offer a full turkey dinner, complete with the fixings. Diamond Knot is asking homeless shelters in the Lynnwood, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace area to encourage their visitors to enjoy Thanksgiving with the staff.
Shelter directors in need of information should contact Sherry Jennings, DK’s Dir. of Sales & Marketing at sherry@diamondknot.com. to coordinate dinners at the Brewpub.
“The staff jumped on this opportunity to give back without blinking,” Eason said. “They have collected toiletries and other items, and are looking forward to sharing the holiday with people in the community.”
