Results of the Human Bean’s annual “Coffee for a Cure” event show just how much folks in Washington County adore their morning java and are committed to the health of their community.
Friday, Oct. 21, was an extra busy day for both the Cornelius and Hillsboro locations of The Human Bean. At any point in the day, lines of customers packed the drive thru and lobby, ready to give back during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Total proceeds of $2,608.33 went directly to the Tuality Healthcare Foundation to help support its breast health services campaign.
The “Coffee for a Cure” event coincides with the construction of Tuality’s new Breast Health Center in the Seventh Avenue Medical Plaza building. When completed in early November, the center will feature the latest in digital mammography technology and a warm, welcoming environment for breast health patients.
“Once again I would like to thank The Human Bean and all who came out on Friday for making this event a success and supporting our work in the fight against breast cancer,” said Cece Clitheroe, Tuality Healthcare Foundation director.
Since 2007, the partnership between The Human Bean and the Foundation has raised over $10,000, according to Clitheroe.
The Human Bean is based in Medford and boasts 47 locations in seven states. To find out more, go to www.thehumanbean.com. For more information on the foundation and its fund-raising and philanthropy efforts, go to www.tualityfoundation.org.
