Peet’s Coffee & Tea in the Whole Foods complex on 15th Ave West is collecting donations for the Greenwood Fire Victims Relief Fund. The company will match donations from customers. Each of the company’s stores picks a charity group each year. The fundraiser starts on Thursday (12/17) and runs through Christmas Eve. The company will donate up to $1,000 per store. On December 24 they will also offer complimentary drip coffee and tea in all of its retail locations to celebrate.
This annual fundraiser has been going on at Peet’s stores since 1985. Last year the stores raised more than $234,000 to benefit local non-profit organizations.
