Dutch Bros raised funds for local food organizations; ultimately allowing for its biggest Dutch Luv Day donation.
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (PRWEB) February 19, 2016
Dutch Bros’ annual Dutch Luv Day raised $234,030 amounting to 1,638,210 pounds of food for local communities.
“This is an amazing result and it’s more than we’ve ever generated in Dutch Bros history,” said Travis Boersma Dutch Bros Co-founder. “I couldn’t be more thrilled and stoked for the people we can serve.”
Every year, Dutch Bros celebrates Valentine’s Day by loving on their communities. On Feb. 14, known in the Dutch Bros world as Dutch Luv Day, all 256 locations in seven states raise funds, as well as awareness for local food organizations.
This year, all Dutch Bros locations donated $1 from every drink sold. On average a $1 donation allows food banks to purchase 7 pounds of nutritious food that immensely benefits people in need.
Together, with the help of their communities Dutch Bros was able to raise $234,030 for local food organizations, which allows food banks to purchase 1,638,210 pounds of food. In turn, providing 1.3 million meals for local families and people in need of support.
By shifting Dutch Luv day from a canned food drive to a $1 per drink sold, Dutch Bros was able to increase the pounds of food raised from 487,966 pounds in 2015 to over 1.6 million this year.
