AUBURN, Calif. (Oct. 5, 2015) - On Wednesday, Oct. 1, both Dutch Bros locations in Auburn supported Molly Anderson-Moran by raising $3,800 to help her and her family offset medical expenses.
“It was an awesome day! It never ceases to amaze me how caring and generous our community is toward those in need,” said Jeremy Mauel, Dutch Bros Auburn owner.

“There's a lot of support for Molly here in Auburn and we're all looking forward to her beating this!" said Jeremy.
