Coffee For A Cause
We believe it is a local business's responsibility to give back to the community. That is why we give $.50 from every pound of coffee sold to the Coffee for a Cause Sponsor of the Month. At the end of each month a predetermined charity, person, place or event will receive the scholarship. For the month of October our scholarship will be awarded to 4 Paws For Ability.
4 Paws for Ability is a non-profit organization that enriches the lives of children with disabilities by the training and placement of quality, task trained service dogs to provide increased independence for the children and assistance to their families.
4 Paws was founded in 1998 by Karen Shirk after she tried unsuccessfully for years to obtain a service dog from traditional service dog agencies. At the time, Karen often used a ventilator to breathe and the agencies she applied to found her too disabled to receive a service dog. After obtaining her own dog and finding the training herself, Karen dreamed of a place where applicants for service dogs were not judged based on severity of disability and set out to start her own organization.
Today, placing approximately 100 dogs a year, 4 Paws For Ability is the largest organization whose primary mission is to place service dogs with children and one of the only organizations to have no minimum age requirements.
