   On Thursday, Sept. 29, Dutch Bros Central Oregon partnered with their community on Buck for Kids Day to raise $8,283 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Oregon.

   “I’m a kid at heart and love supporting the great opportunities for children to play, grow and receive care through Buck for Kids Day,” said Dutch Bros, Co-founder Travis Boersma. “We are grateful for the work these organizations do every day to support our children and communities.”

   Buck for Kids Day is an annual event, which typically fell on the first Friday of every December. For 2016, Dutch Bros’ wanted to take the opportunity to use National Coffee Day to not only celebrate their customers, but also to support local organizations that continually work to better the lives of youth through mentorship, support and positivity.

   On Thursday, Sept. 29, $1 from every drink sold, company-wide, is donated to local organizations that strive to positively impact children in our communities. Dutch Bros Central Oregon donated proceeds from the days to the Ronald McDonald House as they strive to improve the health and well-being of children and their families.

   Also, to encourage community involvement, as well to thank customers for their continued support, Dutch Bros Central Oregon offered customers a 9-stamp loyalty card with every large drink purchased.

   “It was so fun to use National Coffee Day to thank our customers for being so amazing,” continued Boersma. “More importantly it is inspiring how much our customers will rally to help support our communities.”

   Dutch Bros also decided to change the way it celebrated National Coffee Day and donated funds from the day to children. With the help the community, Dutch Bros is able to donate $401,212 to local nonprofits serving youth.
