Look Out for the Helpers

UPDATE: We are knee-deep in deliveries to our helpers, which is SO amazing! Thank you!! We are sending Coffee Love Bombs and Jonny's famous lunches to our healthcare workers, and have already made 7 drops! Each drop looks a bit different, as each location has unique current needs. We are raising our goal so we have adequate reserves for the uncertain times ahead. As of now, the plan is to be spending 20-30% of donations per week on supporting our helpers :)

Tired of being slammed with the news of doom? Trying to think of a good way to help out?

Fred Rogers said, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

Our community is teaming with helpers... they are our local heroes.  They are right now stepping up to face the Coronavirus as it bears down on our children, families and community. Our local health care workers are working day and night to care for people and also to prepare for coming pandemic.  All the while they are as worried and scared as the rest of us, wondering about their kids, the economy, whether they will get sick while caring for us.  We have coordinated with both local hospitals to have a plan that allows us to do deliveries while maintaining all CDC guidelines and safety measures.

Our goal is to team up with The Rambler and Yellow Bike Coffee to raise a base of $10,000.00 dollars to deliver fresh coffee, bakery items and meals to affected health care workers here in Duluth.   There are many small businesses in our community, so lets raise a bunch of support so we can expand our efforts to all front liners.   All donated funds will be used exclusively for food and goodies...and we will keep delivering until we are out of money!
