“At The Roswell Tap, we want to give back to the community we live and work in. We want to return the favor, by supporting the community that supports our business,” said Jerome Stuart, managing partner of The Roswell Tap. “We want to introduce our staff, who are predominately college-aged, to the importance of community service and good works. And last, but not least, we want to put the FUN back in FUNdraising by creating weekly programs that are on-going in which the supporters and donors for each of our Charity Partners can continue to benefit the Charity year-round. Sunshine for a Ranney Day meets all of the above criteria. They are a grassroots, home-grown organization that is providing for the needs of individuals and families within our local community. To make it even better for us at The Tap, they are also our customers, which means we are indeed giving back to our patrons and the community in one fell swoop.”
