LostCoffee had the privilege to partner with a local Castle Rock resident this weekend to help send blankets and other supplies to the children affected by the Sandy Hook shooting. Jennifer Minor was able to connect with a local congregation in Connecticut who had a family member lost that day. With the help of the leadership there, they set a goal of sending 15 blankets to the children at the school. Because of the overwhelming response of Castle Rock residents they are going to send over 100 blankets and other items to the affected families and children.
LostCoffee Limelight was able to provide 1200sq ft of workspace for the volunteers. Both the Perry St store and the Limelight location will be a donation location for those who would like to contribute money. All money will be sent directly to the local Connecticut congregation, a 501c organization, ensuring the funds are distributed appropriately to those who remain in need.
LostCoffee is thankful for the opportunity to serve our community and reach out to those affected.
