Order some coffee to help support kitties!

S.A.I.N.T. Rescue in Cedar Rapids, one of the four amazing local animal rescues that we partner with for our Furry Friday segments each week, has officially kicked off a new fundraiser at the Starbucks inside the Johnson Avenue Hy-Vee. When you purchase specific items from the Starbucks menu, Starbucks will donate specific items that S.A.I.N.T. needs. The fundraiser kicked off on Saturday and will run through this Sunday, January 24th. The hours are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

So, what exactly do you need to order to get certain items donated? Here's the breakdown, according to the event's official Facebook page:

  • One shot of espresso = three trash bags
  • A brewed coffee = one roll of paper towels
  • A pastry = one can of wet cat food
  • A cold brew = one can of wet cat food
  • A latte + a sandwich = 1lb of Purina One Dry Kitten Food

This fundraiser is only taking place at the Starbucks inside the Johnson Avenue Hy-Vee, and no, you do not need to mention S.A.I.N.T. Rescue in order for them to receive a donation.

If you're not a big coffee drinker and you'd like to donate to S.A.I.N.T. another way, there are plenty of other options, including making a monetary donation via PayPal, making a purchase using Amazon Smile, or shopping S.A.I.N.T.'s online wishlist. You can check out all of them on their website HERE.

Breezy is the latest kitten from S.A.I.N.T. Rescue that we featured for our Furry Friday segment! You can read more about her HERE.
