Our partner at Central City Concern (CCC) has been chosen by Portland Roasting Coffee to be the recipient of the roaster’s fifth annual Holiday Roast fundraiser.
One dollar from each bag of Holiday Roast coffee sold will go to CCC's Community Volunteer Corps, a program that helps engage individuals in meaningful volunteer opportunities, building marketable skills, and providing avenues for them to give back to the community. Graduates from the program will receive short-term training in roasting, packaging and distributing coffee from Portland Roasting Coffee.
This special holiday blend is on sale now through December at New Seasons, Zupan’s Markets, Fred Meyer (Stadium and Hawthorne stores), Sheridan Fruit Company, Lamb’s Garden Home, and Made In Oregon stores. It can also be purchased online, or at Central City Concern’s Business Enterprise office at 118 NW 3rd Ave.
Proceeds from the sale will also fund the development of a Central City Concern-branded coffee line.
