Supporting Grace Retreat

Big Heart Coffee is supporting
Grace Retreat Foster Care and Adoption Service in December.
Grace Retreat Foster Care and Adoption Services is a licensing agency contracted by the State of Arizona. Grace Retreat is committed to support families through the process of becoming licensed and providing a home for children. We believe that by supporting the families, they are able to better support the children in their home.

Their mission is to provide an environment where children are valued, loved, and safe by placing them in the care of families who are respected, supported, and educated.

Their efforts in fundraising and resources obtained will directly benefit and support the children and families we serve. They are open to constantly changing their approach in the way they support children and families to fit the demand of the ever changing child welfare system.

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."

To donate directly to Provision Project click here
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!

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.
