Coffee Roaster Perks Up Employees With Child Sponsorships

By David Hylton, Public Relations Specialist
Putting others first – that’s the mentality of Dillanos Coffee Roasters in Sumner, Wash. The company – whose mission statement is “Help People. Make Friends. Have Fun.” – puts others first in several ways, one of them being helping Christian Children’s Fund.

The company sponsors a child for each of its employees – to date that total is 78. At Dillanos’ headquarters a wall is adorned with photos of the employees and their sponsored children. (See the photo above for what the wall looks like.)

Dillanos’ Marketing Director Lon LaFlamme said the employees enjoy the benefit of sponsoring a child and many employees give separate individual donations to CCF during the holidays.

“Putting others first – like the kids in Christian Children’s Fund – not only supports our mission statement and culture, it also encourages our family of employees to put the welfare of Dillanos first. Selflessness builds great companies and happy employees,” said Dillanos’ CEO David Morris.
