LEWISTON, Idaho (Aug. 25, 2015) –On Sunday, Aug. 23, Dutch Bros Lewiston partnered with their community to fill two cargo trailers worth of nonperishable food, water, clothing, and household items for local families and firefighters, who have been affected by the wildfires.
“We were thrilled to see so many community members coming out to support of our firefighters, families and community despite the poor air quality on Sunday,” said Michelle Cameron, Dutch Bro Lewiston Owner. “It was a great success and we’re all so fortunate to live in such a great area where neighbors are willing to help neighbors.”
Dutch Bros Lewiston served as a donation site for the Salvation Army and collected both nonperishable items and cash donations. The Salvation Army will distribute these items to local families and firefighters dealing with the devastating affects of the wildfires.
To encourage community participation, Dutch Bros Lewiston locations offered a free 16-oz. iced Rebel or Dutch Freeze with the donation of five nonperishable food or beverage items.
“The day was filled with fun and tons of community involvement,” said Mackenzie Shoemaker, Dutch Bros Napa Operator. “Since we opened last April, the Boys & Girls Club of Napa Valley has supported us. It was such an honor to partner with the city of Napa to giveback to this awesome organization.”
Dutch Bros Napa donated $1 from every drink sold to the Boys & Girls Club to help the club achieve its mission of helping youth reach their full potential as productive, thoughtful and responsible citizens. Proceeds will also help the Boys & Girls Club of Napa Valley to continue to provide a safe and positive atmosphere for youth while providing programs that promote academic success and healthy lifestyles.
“The money will go directly towards student scholarships, to help more kids have the chance to be part of the Club.” said Mackenzie.
