PRESS RELEASE-WAKE UP FOR UNITED WAY RESULTS
The community came out on Thursday, December 14th to participate in the 3rd annual “Wake Up for United Way” event put on by United Way of Cowlitz & Wahkiakum Counties in partnership with several local coffee shops, including Red Leaf Organic Coffee Co., Dutch Bros., Kalama Koffee, Julie's Java and Vault Books & Brew. Each location contributed a portion of their daily proceeds to United Way to support their 2018 campaign and 24 partner agencies, that will ultimately improve more local lives. The annual event raised a total of $3,761, an increase from year’s past. “We were delighted to have the great support from our local businesses and community members, whether it was stopping in for a regular coffee that you get every day, or buying treats for a staff meeting, family member or friend,” said Executive Director, Brooke Fisher-Clark. “We are so thrilled to have great support from these local coffee businesses in this fun, engaging annual fundraiser,” she stated.
