Community Grounds is more than a coffee shop, it is a gathering space for a community to come together, to find common ground and new friends and support and belonging. In the last year we have seen so many of our Heights neighbors join us for story time and playdates, community connection events like Coffee with a Cop and Conversations with your Legislators. We've rallied together as a community to fight famine in Somalia and find a cure for diseases. We've had lots of laughs with trivia and gone deep in serious topics of racism. Every day we see amazing connection with the people of this city from moms that need a place to bring their kids while things at home are tough to people fleeing domestic abuse to new refugees in this country looking for a way to connect, daily people walk through our doors and find caring people that want to help.
As daily we have made an impact on this community, you have begun to call this place home and we have seen increased business and a loyal customer base emerge. Sadly, this has taken longer than the funds we began this venture with could hold out and now we face closure unless we can rebuild that capital.
If you consider Community Grounds your coffee shop and you've been blessed by the things we're doing, we invite you to take part in keeping us around. Come in and enjoy our delicious menu and take advantage of our homey space. You can also give to this fundraiser to help us stay open while we grow and reach profitability.
We value each and every one of our customers and it is an honor to be part of this amazing community. Thank you for all of your support and for being such a beautiful, diverse and wonderful group of people. We love Columbia Heights and we love you all. #heightspride
