Press Release – Fonté Coffee Underwrites Classroom Supplies For A Year
Seattle, WA – On January 10 at 3:30 p.m., Fonté Café & Wine Bar will host a special celebration for the Moonbeam classroom from the Pike Market Child Care and Preschool (PMCCP), where they will sip hot chocolate and nibble on some afternoon treats. Owner Paul Odom of Seattle’s Fonté Coffee Roaster will present the Pike Market kids and faculty with a check in the amount of $11,000 – the profits raised from sales of Fonté’s 2011 “Limited Edition Holiday Blend”. This significant donation will underwrite a year’s worth of school supplies for all four classrooms at PMCCP, and assist the organization in reaching its goal of making high quality childcare and preschool programs available to children in need.
“As a father of two and an ardent supporter of children’s programs, Pike Market Child Care and Preschool is dear to my heart,” said Paul Odom. “We are thankful for the espousal we received from Seattle and beyond. Your overwhelming support this holiday season has helped make a difference for so many children.”
