On Thursday, March 13, Dutch Bros. Coffee in Chico will celebrate World Kidney Day and sell 16 oz. drinks for $1 with all proceeds benefitting The National Kidney Foundation.
Local owner Dan Richardson was inspired to support The National Kidney Foundation by his friend Jerry Hoyt. Jerry heard a story about a football coach who donated a kidney to a player. He was so moved, he researched the process and last month donated a kidney to a person he didn’t know in South Carolina who was waiting for a transplant.
“Jerry’s incredible gift inspired me to help with awareness and support The National Kidney Foundation on World Kidney Day,” said local owner Dan Richardson. “Jerry is training for a double marathon now as a fundraiser for The National Kidney Foundation.”
