A Little Good News Goes A Long Way

Oregon Spirit Distillers has been making whiskey for the past ten years…and hand sanitizer for the past ten weeks. Deschutes Brewery helped them pivot by sending eight full-time employees so they can keep up with the demand for both their award-winning liquors and the production of hand sanitizer. Thank you to BendBroadband Business for sponsoring this video.

Don’t miss Episode #3 of EDCO’s Resource Check-In Podcast featuring REDI’s Jon Stark and Damon Runberg with the State of Oregon Employment Department as they discuss Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, the future of our region, and how to prepare to reopen your business. 

We will continue to highlight local companies that are successfully navigating this crisis to help inspire others to think outside the box. To sponsor these efforts, email Erin Reilly.
