The Dutch Bros location in Yakima, owned by Emmily McColloch, chose to give one dollar of every drink sold on National Coffee Day this past September 29th to the YouthWorks program through the Memorial Foundation. Pictured here are Julianne Mendoza of the YouthWorks Council and Ivan Baumbach representing the YouthWorks Council and as a contestant in the Mr. Ike YouthWorks pageant. These are just two of the many students who take part in raising not just money, but also awareness of children’s special healthcare needs. The YouthWorks pageants have raised over one million dollars to support healthcare needs and services at Children’s Village, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and Pediatrics at Virginia Mason Memorial. These students are giving back in their communities, volunteering their time, and learning about philanthropy as evidenced by Dutch Bros’ generosity. From 4:30 am to 11:00 pm that day, Dutch Bros raised $1,361.39 to benefit the YouthWorks program put on through The Memorial Foundation. Thank you Dutch Bros, Emmily, and your amazing staff! You and these young people are heroes in our community!
