meet @misstessamarie. "for the last 5+ years, paul and the team at loft & bear have been an integral part of the @pathpartners family. we first connected with paul when the company was still in its infancy, and were immediately impressed by his commitment to incorporating philanthropy from the start.
The ‘distill. drink. donate.’ mission was truly at the heart of paul’s business model, and his personal interest in vetting the organization that he was going to commit a portion of profits to was inspiring. so, what might have initially seemed like unlikely pairing quickly developed into an exciting, innovative, and productive partnership, all in support of helping our homeless neighbors Make it Home.
over the years, in addition to supporting our work through monetary donations and sponsorships, loft & bear has supported and cohosted dozens of events for path, including our exclusive ‘cocktails for cause’ series statewide. paul and the team have also been involved at the ground level - cooking meals at for clients at interim housing sites, supporting veterans in permanent housing, and even participating in our Welcome Home Program, where the team provided furniture and home goods to help one of our clients move into his new home!
we’re truly grateful for the partnership, friendship, and support of paul and his team and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for both companies!"
