Tillamook County United Way announced Wednesday, May 20, that it has received a $1,300 gift from Dutch Bros Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Dutch Bros Coffee.

The gift is part of a larger $1 million commitment made by the Dutch Bros Foundation to assist organizations in its seven operating states. Partnering with United Way allowed the donation to make an immediate impact in areas hit hardest by COVID-19.

“We would like to thank Dutch Bros Coffee for their generous donation to our community during this critical time,” said KaSandra Larson, Tillamook County United Way president. “We will ensure these funds are quickly disbursed to all of our approved local member agencies.”

“We know how fortunate we are to be in a position to support our friends, families and communities,” said Katie Hutchinson, vice president of philanthropy at Dutch Bros Coffee. “We’re all working to find ways to make a difference during these difficult times. We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with United Way to do what is at the heart of our company- making a massive difference and helping people.”
