Gritty's Donates to Go BIG For Hunger

Founder and director Greg Martens was presented with a donation check of $1,700. The generous donation was a result of proceeds from Gritty’s Brew Pub guests in Portland, Auburn and Freeport, adding small donations to their checks during the month of June 2016. Guest donations on average ranged from $2 to $5 and in some cases, guests “Went BIG” with larger donations.
