PHOENIX, Ore. — Dutch Bros made a major donation to the Phoenix-Talent Fire Relief Fund on Friday, handing a big check over to the school district.
Friday's check was for a whopping $289,730. Of the total contribution, $39,730 came from sales at Jackson County Dutch Bros locations on Wednesday, November 27. Another $250,000 came from the Dutch Bros Foundation.
"The devastation of these fires hit us hard," said Katie Hutchinson, vice president of philanthropy at the Dutch Bros Foundation. "We wanted to do more for our neighbors in Jackson County, and give back to the families that our Broistas serve at the window everyday."
