Description of Community Involvement Activities

Beer and wine distributors in Idaho are involved in a wide variety of charitable, economic development and community-building activities. In addition they are good corporate citizens sponsoring a multitude of state and community events. Distributors are also constantly looking for methods to support energy conservation, recycling and other green initiatives. Idaho’s beer and wine distributors also play a vital role in alcohol awareness and education. The IBWDA created and self-funded the “I Don’t Drink” campaign, a program designed to educate students, peer to peer, about the risks associated with alcohol consumption and to prevent underage drinking. A video contest was announced in which Idaho K-12 students submitted self-produced videos describing reasons they do not consume alcohol and suggesting alternative activities to maintain an alcohol-free lifestyle.
