Dutch Bros gives back to the community
MEDFORD, Ore. - Dutch Bros is celebrating Valentine's day in its own way this year - by giving customers an extra stamp on their punch cards with every purchase.
They're also giving a dollar from every drink they sell to local food banks like ACCESS.
Employees says this has been a rewarding experience.
"It's amazing. That's what our company's about - it's helping those around us, making their days better, doing everything we can to help make the community better. It's awesome because our customers are buying into, too," said Dutch Bros employee Kai Elam said.
Elam also said that this was one of the busiest mornings that his coffee stand has had in months.
Dutch Bros has done this in years past by collecting canned food donations, but he said in the past Dutch Bros would sometimes get expired food during these events. So, they instead decided to give a cash donation this year.
