Dutch Bros. hosting fundraiser on Friday to benefit Habitat for Humanity
TRI-CITIES, Wash. – Dutch Bros. is hosting a fundraiser this week to benefit Habitat for Humanity.
On Friday April 14, a dollar from every single drink purchased will be donated to help fund materials for a house Habitat for Humanity is currently working on.
The proceeds will directly to help a struggling family in the Tri-Cities.
The owners of Dutch Brothers say they wanted to continue to give back to the community in a big way.
"It's just a unique opportunity for everybody to band together and provide hope, provide shelter, along with the mission for Habitat for Humanity and just make our community the greatest place it can possibly be," Dutch Bros. Owner Brad Barnes said.
Dutch Bros. employees will also be volunteering their time to help construct the walls in the home.
“We want to give more and do more,” Barnes said. “With this fundraiser not only do we get to give to the cause, but it’s also a chance for us to get our hands dirty.”
Leaders at Habitat for Humanity say they are so grateful for the generosity of the time and money Dutch Brothers is donating to their cause.
"It goes along with our “Power of One” campaign. Where one dollar, plus one person, equals one home, and this is just playing alongside that perfectly," Executive Director Lisa Godwin said.
The “Power of One” takes many individuals give in just small amounts to make a huge difference. Habitat builds simple, decent and affordable homes for families in need.
Godwin said she’s excited to be partnering with Dutch Bros. because it helps get the next generation involved in philanthropy.
“I think this is a great way to get younger people involved in our community, by just buying a coffee they can donate a dollar to Habitat, and that dollar will truly make a difference,” she said.
