Supporting Local & Global Communities

Giving back is important to The Human Bean.
From sponsorship to event involvement to donation days, our team is committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve locally and globally.

The Human Bean of Treasure Valley held a donation day benefiting a local and worthy children’s cause called the Jayden DeLuca Foundation, on Friday, June 24th. This year marked the 4th annual Jayden DeLuca Fundraiser and all five Human Bean locations in Treasure Valley participated by encouraging customer donations and donating 30% of their daily sales directly to the cause.

The donations raised by this event will support technological progress in the development of pediatric heart conditions. Thank you to all who supported the Jayden DeLuca Foundation by generously donating or purchasing a tasty beverage in Treasure Valley on June 24th.

We are proud to recognize another Human Bean region in Northern Colorado who is giving back in big ways both locally and globally.

The Human Bean of Northern Colorado¬†hosts many “Guest Barista Days” where members of the community join the baristas in the stands and¬†interact directly with customers to promote their cause. In addition to encouraging customer donations, The Human Bean of Northern Colorado gives 10% of their daily sales to the guest barista. They hosted one of their very own managers¬†as a Guest Barista in support of her recent trip to an orphanage in Haiti on Thursday, June 23, at their¬†location in Evans, Colorado.

Read more about her eye-opening experience here: My Trip to Haiti…

The Human Bean of Northern Colorado encouraged customers to donate basic medical supplies that they would send to the orphanage in Haiti where their manager visited. A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated! Because of you, The Human Bean of Northern Colorado was able to provide a large donation of medial supplies to support children in Haiti.

Team Sponsorship for Local Bike Race

The Human Bean is a proud supporter¬†of the communities we serve. Through fundraisers, donation days and sponsorships, we’ve raised and donated thousands of dollars for countless organizations over the years. ¬†For example, our biggest annual fundraiser, Coffee for A Cure, has raised¬†over $850,000 for community¬†breast health centers since 2002. Learn¬†more about Coffee for A Cure here.

In addition to large-scale fundraisers like Coffee for A Cure, The Human Bean also values supporting smaller¬†local events too, like the “Brewhaus Cross”. The Human Bean supported this event by sponsoring a¬†¬†race team from Southern Oregon’s¬†Marty‚Äôs Cycle Bicycle Shop. The Brewhaus Cross is an exciting 4 day bike race held each September that benefits local Search & Rescue.

The bike races were held over the summer on Thursday the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th of September at the Bigham Knoll Campus in Jacksonville, Oregon. During and after¬†the race, bikers and supporters enjoyed yummy Brats and beer from Jacksonville’s Schoolhaus Brewhaus Restaurant.¬†Since 2004, this fun local¬†event has raised over $200,000 in cash and equipment for¬†Josephine County Search and Rescue. The Human Bean is proud to support¬†Marty‚Äôs Cycle Bike Shop’s race team in such an awesome community event!

Hot Chocolate & Holiday Lights

merry & bright

Nothing says happy holidays more than delicious hot chocolate, sparkling Christmas lights and supporting the community! This season The Human Bean celebrated all these things and more on Dec. 22nd at Greystone Court during the Access Inc. Hot Chocolate Sponsorship.

Greystone Court is located in Medford, Oregon and every winter the entire neighborhood brightly shines. Each house on the block is gorgeously decorated with countless holiday lights.

hot choc

More than 5,000 cars drive through Greystone Court annually to catch a glimpse of these lights. Access Inc. has made this event one of their greatest annual food drives by encouraging members of the community to bring canned food and cash donations. In support of Access Inc. and to spread holiday cheer, The Human Bean added to the event for the third year in a row by providing free hot chocolate to those attending.

The Human Bean served 20 gallons and over 450 cups of complimentary hot chocolate that evening. Faces of children from ages 1-92 gleamed as they enjoyed the beautiful lights while sipping on warm hot chocolate. Needless to say, we’ll definitely be back next year.

Happy Holidays from one Human Bean to Another!

The Human Bean is a proud¬†sponsor of Jackson County’s weekly concert series called Concerts in the Park coordinated by Medford Parks & Recreation.¬†Last¬†week,¬†they pushed their sponsorship even further by providing free iced tea to those attending the concert.¬†Featuring their sweet summertime iced tea called The Breeze, HB baristas served overheated concert enthusiasts refreshing green iced tea sweetened with a splash of lemonade and raspberry.

Everyone who tried The Breeze had nothing but great things to say and the community event  was a huge success overall. The Human Bean takes pride in the active role they play within the community and they look forward to supporting similar events in the near future.

Giving Back in Treasure Valley

For the third year in a row, Treasure Valley Human Bean locations raised funds and awareness for a local and worthy children’s cause¬†called the¬†Jayden DeLuca Foundation!

The Jayden DeLuca Foundation was established in 2008 in honor of Jayden Riley DeLuca, a 2 1/2 year old little girl who passed away due to a cardiac condition. Her parents, Jeremy and Karalie Deluca, believe that Jayden made such a positive impact on the world and it is only fitting that The Jayden DeLuca Foundation do the same in her honor.

JDL dy  JDLDonation Day
On Friday, June 26th, all 5 Human Bean locations in the Treasure Valley region donated 30% of their daily SALES, not just proceeds, to the Jayden DeLuca Foundation. The donations raised by this event will provide support and technological progress in the development of pediatric heart conditions. Thank you to all who supported Jayden DeLuca Foundation by generously donating or purchasing a tasty beverage on June 26th. With your support, The Human Bean of Treasure Valley raised $3,100 for the Jayden DeLuca Foundation.

4th Annual Food Drive

The Human Bean held their forth annual food drive on Friday, August 22nd and was overjoyed by community and customer support. Along with all the smiles, The Human Bean customers enjoyed drink discounts and a chance to win college football tickets with their donations during the one-day event. All food donations were kept local and benefited food banks in each community.

The Human Bean believes that no one should ever go hungry, no matter the time of year. ‚ÄúWe choose to hold our annual food drive in mid-summer each year because this is when food donations reach their annual lows,‚ÄĚ said Jackie McGrath of The Human Bean. ‚ÄúThere are many food drives during the winter holidays, but summer is when supplies run low and the need is high.‚ÄĚ

A huge thank you again to everyone for supporting our Food Drive and making it a success. Your generous donations are making a difference in feeding the hungry in your community. Thank you!
