Social Responsibility & Alcohol Abuse Prevention

Social Responsibility & Alcohol Abuse Prevention

We know that education must begin early to be effective, and that’s why we encourage parents to talk with their children about underage drinking as well as responsible consumption in adults ages 21 and older. We engage with a wide variety of agencies and organizations, including parents, schools, and institutions of higher learning, in our efforts to reduce underage and high-risk drinking.

OHLQ is committed to raising the bar. We want to do our part to make Ohio a place where social responsibility and community involvement are valued and are built into our DNA. As part of the OHLQ Cares initiative, Ohio Liquor supports a variety of programs and activities to help reduce the harms of alcohol abuse and highlight the industry’s community involvement.

Our Pillars

Social Responsibility & Community Involvement

OHLQ is uniquely positioned to create and promote corporate social responsibility initiatives that support, elevate, and celebrate programs and businesses associated with the spirits industry. Our overarching goal is to establish a framework that benefits and uplifts Ohioans and the communities where they work and live. Together with our many partners – from OHLQ stores to suppliers, brokers, and more – we are all members of our respective communities. This creates many opportunities to engage at the local level. With that in mind, we continually strive to connect our partners with local volunteer and service opportunities and are working on developing initiatives throughout the state.

Responsible Drinking

At OHLQ, responsible consumption and abuse prevention are woven into everything we do and represent. We know that education must begin early to be effective, and that’s why we encourage parents to talk with their children about underage drinking as well as responsible consumption in adults ages 21 and older. We engage with a wide variety of agencies and organizations, including parents, schools, and institutions of higher learning, in our efforts to reduce underage and high-risk drinking.
Highlighting Economic Development

Revenue from OHLQ is the fuel that drives Ohio’s economic development efforts, with profits from liquor products providing dedicated funding for JobsOhio. This funding model makes it possible for JobsOhio to use non-taxpayer dollars to attract, retain, and increase jobs throughout the state. OHLQ partners also provide jobs for people living in Ohio communities.
