What is Harpoon Helps?

Since the beginning, Harpoon has strived to be a good neighbor. In 2003, Harpoon Helps was created to organize Harpoon’s charitable work under one name. Harpoon Helps was born as the philanthropic arm of the Harpoon Brewery. Our mission is to support local charities throughout New England with donations of fresh Harpoon beer and volunteer hours, and by raising thousands of dollars through Harpoon events to aid their efforts. Each year Harpoon donates thousands of dollars in merchandise and many barrels of beer to New England charities.
