PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 3, 2022 — Cooper Hammond, 8, is partnering with Meals on Wheels People (MOWP), PDXPOP!, and Nossa Familia Coffee to give back in a big way and support older adults in the Portland metro area with his Cooper’s Coffee stand on February 12.
Growing up in a family that values giving back to its community, Cooper has adopted an annual tradition of creatively supporting a new charitable organization every holiday season. Over the most recent holidays, MOWP was the lucky beneficiary of Cooper’s giving heart—and emerging business acumen.
After learning about MOWP while visiting his local Green Zebra grocery store during Donate Dinner, a MOWP initiative to ensure all older adults receive nutritious meals, Cooper decided to launch a coffee stand in his neighborhood to raise funds for those same older adults facing food insecurity and social isolation. It was a smashing success!
Now, Cooper is taking his passion for serving others to the next level with another pop-up event to benefit the needs of older adults in our community. On Saturday, Feb. 12, Cooper’s Coffee stand will be back in action serving up warm drinks, cheer, and a very special edition of PDXPOP! and Nossa Familia Coffee’s best-selling Teodoro’s Italian Roast.
WHEN: Saturday, Feb. 12, from 10 AM – 1 PM
WHERE: Meals on Wheels People, 7710 SW 31st Avenue, Portland, OR 97219
WHAT: Cooper’s Coffee stand will be open to the public.
“We are so thankful for Cooper and his family,” said Tony Staser, Chief Development Officer at Meals on Wheels People. “We love when anyone, and kids especially, comes up with creative ways to give back. The fact that Cooper is giving to our older neighbors makes his impact even greater. I hope others are ignited to action after hearing Cooper’s story. Whether it’s volunteering—or holding their own coffee stand—anyone can give back.”
Through www.cooperscoffee.org, Cooper is bringing awareness to the needs of our older neighbors. By showing adults and children alike that anyone can give, Cooper is changing the lives of many. Through the month of February, purchase both PDXPOP! and Nossa Familia Coffee limited-edition Cooper’s coffee popcorn and coffee. Proceeds will benefit homebound older adults in our community through Meals on Wheels People programs.
