Marukan has committed to a partnership with the Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCS) by contributing $10,000 to Griffin-Spalding Partners In Education (PIE) during the grand opening of our new Griffin, Georgia brewery.

Marukan agreed to be a district-wide PIE with a focus on Futral Road Elementary, Rehoboth Road Middle School and Spalding High School. In addition, we committed our support to the Georgia REACH Scholarship program at Rehoboth Road Middle School, the annual PIE Golf Tournament and the annual Teacher of the Year program.
PIE Board Chair Stephanie Windham stated, “Griffin-Spalding Partners In Education is excited to welcome Marukan Vinegar as a new partner. Marukan’s generous contribution will allow PIE to provide more resources to our schools to support both students and staff. We look forward to working with Marukan and its employees to explore hands-on opportunities to make our partnership even stronger.”
