LA CROSSE, Wis (WKBT) – One La Crosse business is trying to help make a difference in the community. La Crosse Distilling Co. is continuing a series of events called “Make A Difference Mondays”.

The event takes place on the last Monday of each month. They use 10% of the day’s food and beverage sales to a cause that’s chosen by the benefiting group.

“We’ve partnered with a lot of schools on our Making a Difference Mondays, and a lot of those funds have primarily gone to closing that gap on feeding school children. We’ve also supported a lot of outdoor growing and gardening programs with various schools. Whether we’re in a pandemic or not, these can use our help, so we’re here to do that,” said Chad Staehly, a co-founder and co-owner of the business.

This month, proceeds are going towards North Woods International to help build outdoor classrooms for socially distanced learning. Community members can help support the cause by ordering in or carry out.
