You could hear the Beer Choir loud and cheerful Sunday evening at Hay Camp Brewery, bringing not only their voices, but donations for a special cause as well.
The group was singing and drinking Sunday evening as a way to kick off National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week. Along with singing, people were asked to drop off coats and any financial donations, all to support those in the community in need. They say singing songs about beer from their hymnal book is just part of what they do.
Paul Robinson, Chapter Leader for Beer Choir, says "To give back to our community is a big part of Beer Choir, just making the world a better place and part of singing together brings a bit of camaraderie and friendship and so that kind of goes along with our values."
Coats collected at Sunday night's gathering will be available on a rack outside First Presbyterian Church on Kansas St. All cash donations will be given to the Hope Center.
If you're interested in joining, the Beer Choir will host its next event, "Beer and Carols," on the evening of December 21.
