GRANTS PASS, Ore. – Dutch Bros Coffee and its customers raised $496,900 for organizations which support the community’s youth during its 10th annual Buck for Kids day. Friday, September 18, Dutch Bros donated $1 from every drink sold to local organizations hand-picked by Dutch Bros crews for their commitment to creating a brighter future for kids. 

“We believe in giving back to our communities and love when our customers join us! We’re so thankful for their help in making a difference for our local youth organizations,” said Katie Hutchinson, vice president of philanthropy at Dutch Bros. “The impact these organizations make for our kids is more important than ever before!”
