By Human Bean Northern Colorado Contact Krista Smith November 6, 2023

As part of their annual tradition to bring cheer to children in need over the holidays, Human Bean Northern Colorado is hosting a toy drive from November 9 through December 3, 2023. 

Customers can bring new and unwrapped gifts for young children and teens to any of the 10 drive-thru locations. Collected donations will be distributed to Santa Cops of Weld County, Serve 6.8 and Life Stories to deliver to children in their respective communities.

“Gifts for all ages, especially teens, are needed this year, and we are so grateful to these organizations that will help us distribute them to different areas of northern Colorado,” said Krista Smith, Assistant Director of Operations for The Human Bean Northern Colorado. “There are so many parents struggling to provide a joyous holiday for their children, it’s comforting for customers to know they could be helping a neighbor in their own town.”

To kick off the drive on Thursday, November 9, The Human Bean will be hosting each nonprofit at one of their locations for Guest Barista Day:

 Santa Cops of Weld County will be at 6505 W. 29th Street in Greeley

 Serve 6.8 will be at 6180 E. Crossroads Boulevard in Loveland

 Life Stories will be at 3665 W. 10th Street in Greeley

Additionally, each of those three locations will be donating 10 percent of sales made on November 9.
