Dutch Bros Central Oregon Helps Two Local Girls with Medical Expenses

BEND, Ore. (July 15, 2016) – On Wednesday, July 20, Dutch Bros Central Oregon will donate proceeds from the day sales to two local girls to help offset medical expenses.


Taylor Laidlaw and Ashley McNeil have both endured the trials and tribulations of living with life-altering conditions. Taylor is currently in remission and Ashley is still receiving treatment for her Lyme Disease, and is paying for most of it out-of-pocket. Both of these young women have accrued a substantial amount of medical expenses due to much needed medical treatments.


“We became aware of both of these young ladies needs earlier in the year and wanted to be able to help them both. We thought a proceeds day would be a great way to do this and engage the Central Oregon community to rally around two really special people,” said Kaelyn Costa, Dutch Bros Central Oregon owner.  “We are so glad to have this opportunity to bless them because both are customers and well known by our Dutch Bros family. We wanted to be able to give back some of the joy they have brought to us and our employees lives.”


On Wednesday, all nine Dutch Bros locations in Bend, Redmond and Sisters will donate proceeds from the day’s sales to Taylor and Ashley. Fund will helps these young women with medical expenses. Dutch Bros will also have on-site donation buckets for those community members wanting to contribute more.


“Ashley said her next treatment wouldn’t have been possible without the incoming funds to be raised on July 20,” said Kaelyn. “We are so happy and humbled to be able to help both girls out!”
