Elevating Spirits and Strengthening Bonds

We started 2024 strong, doubling down on our Spirited Neighbor initiative. Through donations, activations and volunteerism, Heaven Hill team members embody our Spirited Commitment, with an aim of fostering meaningful relationships and contributing to the well-being of our neighbors. Here’s a glimpse into our recent engagements and employee volunteer updates that showcase our dedication to the West Louisville community that our Bernheim Distillery calls home.

Glizzy Tour: Creating Smiles One Hotdog at a Time

As part of our ongoing commitment to the residents of West Louisville, we partnered with Change Today Change Tomorrow for the Glizzy Tour community gourmet hotdog giveaway.

The Glizzy Tour is an ongoing social series developed by senior events manager, Dana Darley to highlight Heaven Hill products at various popular bars and restaurants around Louisville and Lexington. Dana wanted to expand our partnership with Chef Kyle and impact the community by providing free hotdogs to those who stopped by the Change Today Change Tomorrow office to pick up their weekly groceries.

The event addressed food waste and brought joy to residents. Heaven Hill team members volunteered alongside the University of Louisville Kent School of Social Work to bag donated groceries and serve up hot meals and lemonade donated by locally owned Spent Lemonade.

The Glizzy Tour allowed us to connect with our neighbors in a unique way, listening to their stories, and offering support where needed.

Read with a Leader Day at Perry Elementary

On Friday, February 23, Heaven Hill team members volunteered their time to participate in Read with a Leader Day at Perry Elementary School to celebrate Black History Month. The event was hosted by Perry and received volunteer support from organizations like Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. and the Boys and Girls Club. Each volunteer could choose a book or two from Perry’s collection to read to their assigned class. The response from interested volunteers was so overwhelming that each class could be covered.

In addition to reading stories, team members were able to get to know the students and teachers better through a series of Q&A’s and fun games.

Perry Elementary has been a valued community partner of Heaven Hill since it opened, and the team is grateful for the opportunity to impact such a brilliant group of young people.
