BOISE, Idaho — Dutch Bros Coffee is holding the annual Buck for Kids day to support local youth organizations. On September 18, the coffee company will donate $1 from every drink sold to organizations picked by local Dutch Bros crews.

“We see every day the impact young people have on our world. At a time when kids are experiencing so much change and uncertainty, we’re seeing them step up, adapt and achieve great things,” said Travis Boersma, CEO and co-founder of Dutch Bros. “We’re stoked to join our customers and communities in supporting organizations working to create brighter futures for kids and teens. Buck for Kids is more important now than it’s ever been- I have no doubt our friends, family and customers will help us make a massive difference!”

Buck for Kids started over $2.5 million for youth organizations, according to a news release. Local franchisees and operators choose the organization they would like to support, ensuring every dollar stays local.

Recipients include nonprofits focused on alleviating hunger, preventing child abuse, creating mentorship activities and providing medical transport for sick children. To find a Dutch Bros location near you, click here.
