For the last year, we have had an outreach team of baristas and “friends of Kuppa Joy” who have faithfully served coffee and treats to those living in and around Poverello house. During this time, we’ve gotten to know the volunteers and staff of Poverello and have partnered with them in serving their clients. From Christmas Eve to Thanksgiving morning, we have been welcomed in to build relationships and give love to clients at the Poverello House. It has been a true blessing having a consistent and safe place to go to continue to see our friends week after week. This has streamlined opportunities to bring specific gifts to those we meet from Christmas gifts to clothes, and even some of their favorite Kuppa Joy drinks (shoutout to Robin with her Blood Orange & Doobie with his chocolate milk). We are proud of what Poverello House does and are thankful to be on the same team in this fight to end homelessness.
