Dutch Brothers Coffee Puts Smiles on Children’s Faces

On Saturday, April 5, Dutch Bros. Coffee in Davis and Woodland will help put smiles on children’s faces, and celebrate Sammie Hartsfield’s life and care for other children by participating in Sammie’s Bunny Drive. Dutch Bros. Davis and Woodland will give a free drink to those who donate a new (with tags attached) springtime themed stuffed animal.

Local owner Sean Provost was inspired by Sammie Hartsfield’s idea that a small gift of a stuffed animal can make a stay in the hospital feel just a teensy bit easier. Since Sammie started the fund in 2007 over 10,000 stuffed animals have been donated to area hospitals for children. Sammie passed away in 2009 at the age of 12 and the Bunny Drive is held in her honor annually.

“We are so honored to support Sammie’s vision,” said Sean Provost. “Sammie’s Bunny Drive is good for the children who get a stuffed animal, but reminds us all how lucky we are each day.”

Dutch Bros. Woodland/Davis

Sean and wife Lynsey own two locations in Woodland and one in Davis. They believe in lifting people up, so they have used Dutch Bros. as his vehicle to do so since 2001.

Since Dutch Bros. Woodland opened in 2004, Sean and Lynsey have donated over $100,000 to nonprofit organizations and local causes, including Woodland Joint Unified School District (WJUSD), Woodland Memorial Hospital, local law enforcement and fire departments, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

One of many ways that they raise funds is to bring out their distinctive mobile unit and give back 20% of all proceeds to fundraising events.

Dutch Bros. Davis/Woodland has been named as the “Best Coffee of Yolo County” for the past five years in a row.

Sean and Lynsey currently employ 50 people, whom they always encourage to achieve their dreams.
