Hi Cups Supporters, Friends & Family,
In late March, some of our college friends helped seed the funds for a way for us to keep our local coffee shop, Cups Community Coffee, going and giving amid the new regulations and guidelines brought on due to COVID-19.
We thought coffee and goodies would certainly provide a lift to first responders, health care workers and others in the Fort Collins community who are working tirelessly.
We call it #cUPLIFT.
We just reached our 100th deliver on July 20, 2020! It was a bit later than our goal date, but we got busier in the shop as things began to open.
Any level of donation is great- we started with a $2,000 contribution and have since received anywhere from $5 to $75 to $300. We will put it to great use in giving back to the community. If you have specific give to request, message us on Facebook or Instagram or just give us a call.
We appreciate your support.
Amy & Matt (& Summer & Jackson) (& Cups Staff)(& cUPLIFT recipients!)
PS. We've done a small collection just this fall to help give a #cUPLIFT to some of the wild fire crews. Thanks to those who've helped make it happen- both on the giving and receiving end! There are always a lot of logistics to ensure a proper contribution.
