White Dog Coffee, customers raise $15K to support baristas
SPOKANE, Wash. — White Dog Coffee raised over $15,000 to support their employees during the pandemic.
On Friday, all store profits for the day—coffees sold, tips, sales at all White Dog locations—went directly to their baristas. According to the coffee business, the total profits would be added together and then divided among their employees.
What surprised them, however, was the enormous community response.
White Dog Coffee says lines of cars wrapped around buildings and parking lots, with customers leaving generous tips. It was a busy day, but the company says the local support means a great deal.
They say that people dropped by to support a local business, never having been a White Dog customer before.
With the math finished, the coffee shop says they raised $15,000, all of which will go back to their employees.
