Supporting Provision Project

It's November and Big Heart Coffee is supporting
Provision Project
"The mission of Provision Project is to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer.
The breast cancer battle is real. The news of diagnosis is hard to receive. Treatment is scary. And for some women, life has become nearly impossible. Marriages have ended. Jobs have been lost, or they’re too sick to work. Now, in addition to fighting for their lives, they are battling to keep up with the most basic of bills: food, rent, utilities, gas, medical co-pays.  It’s heartbreaking.
That’s why Provision Project was created.  Provision Project makes a way for women in active breast cancer treatment to receive tangible help quickly."

Come by Monday-Friday 7-2  
Saturdays 8-2
let us make you a pourover, latte, tea or Big Heart ice cream Shake 
and support the Provision Project.

Samaritan's Purse Shoebox packers are needed November 4th and 10th at Big Heart.
Everyone, especially children are encouraged to come and make some boxes.  
Allow a little extra time at Big Heart to make a few boxes after drinking your favorite Tucson roasted coffee (Presta, Arbuckles, Yellow Brick and Hermosa).
FREE EVENT, but there are a few requirements on items to be put into each box (like pencils, paper...)  All items to be boxed will be at Big Heart.  They just need YOU to pack the boxes full!
Any donations of new toys or monetary would be a blessing, but not required.
Looking for washcloths and toys, especially for boys.
It's a great time to make a difference for a child and meet new friends!
Thanks to the Franklin Family!

Donation to Tucson Wildlife Center

Big Heart was able to donate $647.00 to

 Just so happened, we found an owl in our yard a few days ago and went out to the Wildlife Center on Speedway to drop it off.  The Wildlife Center has the nicest staff!

Tucson Conquistadore Foundation in October

Big Heart Coffee is proud to sponsor the Tucson Conquistadore Foundation this month.


The Foundation’s goal - to build an endowment fund that will generate guarantee funds for the future of the youth of Southern Arizona. The Conquistadores have made a difference in thousands of individual lives.
Key beneficiaries of the Conquistadores' fund-raising efforts have been The First Tee of Tucson, Tucson and Pima County Junior Golf Programs, the Field of Dreams/Challenger Little League sports complex, Boys and Girls Clubs in Tucson, Sierra Vista and Nogales, Pima County Special Olympics, Educational Enrichment Foundation, Tucson Urban League and the YMCA.

The Tucson Conquistadores Foundation’s goal is to build an endowment that will generate a minimum of $1 million per year to support such programs. The advantage of an endowment is that it is perpetual and provides permanent annual support.

Your contributions are governed by a conservative investment policy to protect your donation and the endowment. Beneficiaries of grants will continue to be scrutinized so the most needy, most-deserving kids benefit from your contributions.

As they have since 1962, the youth of Southern Arizona are counting on the Conquistadores for support for athletic endeavors. To meet this mission, it is essential that the Foundation be endowed to support future generations of young athletes.

Supporting Wings for Women

 In August, Big Heart is supporting Wings for Women.
Mission Statement
Empowering homeless and impoverished women to overcome despair through basic living support, coaching, and guidance to lead self-sustainable, productive lives….
Goals
    •    To provide a clean, safe, sober-living home environment where women and their children feel welcomed and supported in their transition to becoming independent members of the community.
    •    To offer education, job training and skill-building opportunities for women to prepare themselves for self-sufficiency.
Values
    •    We believe everyone who is given a chance, regardless of the past, can excel with support and community intervention.
    •    We believe in the power of mentoring to help people achieve their dreams. By motivating, supporting, and creating opportunities for others to excel, mentors are valuable role models that build confidence and self-esteem.
    •    We believe in the ability to empower people by educating them about systems of societal dysfunction, thereby transforming their beliefs.
