On Friday November 19, all five of the Dutch Bros. Coffee stands in Roseburg,
and the one in Sutherlin, will hold a fundraiser for the Greater Douglas United Way.
To participate, just buy a coffee between and . One dollar from every drink sold, goes to the organization.
In similar events in past years, Dutch Bros. has been able to raise more than $2,000 for the organization through coffee sales. The Greater Douglas United Way supports more than 30 different local agencies. It's important to them that local money stays local.
"We've got 32 member agencies that we're helping fund this year, ranging anywhere from Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, to Campfire, to Battered Person's Advocacy, the YMCA," says Bryan Trenkle of Greater Douglas United Way.
"Like I said, all of the dollars that are raised here in the community, stay in the community."
The theme for this year's campaign is "lead the way, donate today," and they're hoping to raise at least $675,000 by the end of it. If you'd like to volunteer, just stop by their downtown location, on the corner of Jackson and Cass in Roseburg.
If coffee's not really your thing, the Great Douglas United Way is holding its "Heroes' Breakfast" on Saturday October 20, in the morning from until at the Phoenix school. Tickets are $4 dollars for kids and $5 for adults, and that includes a pancake breakfast donated by Brix 527. At the breakfast, local personalities will be dressed up as classic super heroes, signing autographs for the kids. All proceeds will go towards the Greater Douglas United Way.
