SUNNYSIDE, Was. (June 29, 2017) – On Wednesday, June 21, Dutch Bros Sunnyside raised $4,127 for Noe Medelez and Norma Gallegos, two regular Dutch Bros customers, who were injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this month.
“We just want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for coming to show your support for Noe and Norma,” said Erin Bates, owner of Dutch Bros Sunnyside. “It was so great to see our community rally together when it was needed the most!”
Noe and Norma were on a motorcycle ride in the evening when they lost control on a curve. Both were taken to the hospital, where they spent multiple days in recovery and in surgery. Their medical bills will not be exclusively covered by insurance, and so Erin and Dutch Bros Sunnyside felt the need to step-in and help them in their time of need.
Dutch Bros Sunnyside raised a total of $4,127, between the stand’s donation and money donated by customers. That money will be used to help pay some of Noe and Norma’s medical bills.
