CHICO, Calif. – The Dutch Bros Foundation announced it is committing $250,000 to wildfire relief efforts throughout the western states.
“It’s devastating to see what’s happening across our western states,” said Katie Hutchinson, vice president of philanthropy at Dutch Bros Coffee. “Our customers and communities have always been so supportive of us, we’re grateful for the opportunity to support them.”
The funds donated by the foundation will go directly towards the Red Cross Western Wildfires Fund, MRG Rogue Valley Relief Fund, and the Latino Community Foundation Northern CA Wildfire Relief Fund. It will help to provide food, housing and resources to those impacted by wildfires.
