Pinelands Brewing Company is making their mark in the community with a Jenga set.

Robert Shay, one of the brewery’s partners, came up with the idea to help businesses and the community after purchasing a Jenga set for the customers to play with while at the brewery. He stated “It dawned on me one day that we could use it to fundraise and promote other local businesses.” He noted that the community had rallied together in the early stages of the pandemic to assist businesses that were affected by the shutdown and that he “felt this was a good time to show we are in this together when so many families have been impacted in so many ways.”  All the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to the Tuckerton Food Pantry. 

The Jenga set has 54 blocks. As of now, 39 blocks have been purchased by areas businesses. Rob discussed his idea with Randy Campoli, owner of NJ Logowear who “didn’t even hesitate when I asked him to volunteer his time and equipment to do the engraving. He has been a great partner in this.” Each Jenga block will be engraved with the business name.
