Did you know that 94% of teachers spend their own money on school supplies?

It’s true. So we’re trying to help. For nine years, Four Peaks has partnered with customers, retailers, and teachers to distribute free kits full of the supplies teachers need to educate their students. This year, our goal is to hand out 10,000 kits to teachers in Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada.

Years ago, Four Peaks co-founder Jim Scussel was sipping on a Kilt Lifter at the brewery when he overheard something that thoroughly upset him. A group of teachers, gathered for beers after a particularly tough day of class, was discussing the lack of supplies—even essentials like pencils and paper—provided for their students by the school at which they worked. Joining the conversation, Scussel learned that theirs was not a unique problem; tight education budgets regularly lead to shortages of classroom essentials, and teachers across the nation often spend their own money—sometimes hundreds of dollars a year—to make sure their students have the learning tools they need. Scussel knew he had to help.

So, in the summer of 2011, Four Peaks rallied customers, staff and family to donate supplies for teachers to pick up at the brewery. The initiative, which came to be known as Four Peaks For Teachers, has since become an expansive, multi-state effort that has proven to be incredibly beneficial and rewarding to both the local teaching community and the brewery. This year, we hope to distribute 10,000 school supply kits to teachers in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.
