But what if that cup of coffee could help some kids in need in Washoe County?
On April 27 and 28, Coffeebar Reno is inviting families to join them in raising awareness for National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The popular coffeehouse and bakery on Mt. Rose Steet is partnering with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) and the Washoe CASA Foundation, and donating a portion of their sales from all their CoffeeBar locations from Reno to Menlo Park to the two organizations who help countless Washoe County children each year.
From 9 am to 1 pm on Saturday, April 28, Coffeebar will host Family Day. The whole family can show their support for the community’s children and get their own kids involved by making their own Pinwheel for Prevention for the community garden while listening to live music from The Musical Therapy Club and participating in other family activities. Maybe stop by before or after that soccer game or birthday party. Grab a cup of coffee to sip, get the kids a vanilla steamer and a few bites while taking some time to learn about some great organizations that help so many kids here.
It is estimated more than 900 abused and neglected children live in foster care in Washoe County because they cannot live safely at home. And every day, the NCJFCJ and the Washoe CASA Foundation are working with county, state, community organizations and families to educate and advocate for these children — and when needed, their families.
On both the 27th and 28th, representatives from the organizations will be available at Coffeebar to talk about their programs and the ongoing need to help children victimized and traumatized by abuse. They also will let people know how they can get involved to make a difference in the lives of children in our community.
Coffeebar Reno is located at 682 Mount Rose St. and open 6am-9pm daily.
