PHOENIX, Ariz. (March 22, 2017) – On Friday, March 17, Dutch Bros locations east of the I-17 celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by raising $13,500 to support the Arizona Chapter of March of Dimes.
“We can’t express enough thanks to everyone who was able to make it out to support our efforts to assist the March of Dimes with their wonderful cause!” said Josh Hayes, Dutch Bros Phoenix regional manager.
March of Dimes has a local Arizona chapter, which continues to serve babies in the area. March of Dimes is focused on the health of all babies. Through research and awareness, the organization strives to give all babies a chance for a healthy and happy life.
“We had the opportunity to hear many special stories about how their organization blessed families that we serve daily and how it helped them get to where they are now!” said Josh. “This is a day we won’t soon forget.”
To raise funds, all 16 Dutch Bros locations east of the I-17 donated proceeds from the day’s sales. They also provided on-site donation buckets for community members wanting to contribute more to this organization. These funds will directly benefit March of Dimes as they continue research efforts in hopes of preventing birth defects, premature births and infant mortally.
