$5 Donation = Coffee from Woods = A Yummy Way to Support Rebound


THIS FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2019

Do you drink coffee?  If so, head to Woods Coffee this Friday to support Rebound of Whatcom County while enjoying your favorite coffee.  And take a friend with you!

The Rebound website explains, "Donate $5 or more to Rebound of Whatcom County, and get any 12oz. coffee drink FOR FREE at all Woods Coffee locations in Whatcom County.

Your purchase goes directly to support Rebound’s Programs in our community…learn more by contacting Yvonne at yvonne@reboundfamilies.org"

I'm not a coffee drinker but I think I'll ask if the same offer goes for tea.  See you at a Woods Coffee location next Friday!
