Our very first non-profit specialty coffee partnership started with a call to the Autism Society of Dayton. What a great group of volunteer board members that help connect families in financial need that have a loved one on the autism spectrum that needs access to care with grants that help make those treatments and services possible.
$10.00 of every purchase of our Autism Society of Dayton Blend will help support children and adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder who are in need of financial assistance.
