The owner of Maine Oyster Co, and our business have decided to collaborate for a five day event to spread love and positivity within the community this holiday season. We are doing this event purely to inspire those around us to give back to those that are less fortune than themselves and spark a movement of giving and gratitude in the area. Especially during this time of year, it is so important to remember how blessed we all are, and create an environment that is bound by unity and passion. Coffee Me Up will be holding a can-drive this Saturday (Dec 15th)-Tuesday (Dec 18th). Anyone that participates in bringing nonperishable canned food items will receive a free coffee and their name will be entered to win a gift card to Maine Oyster Co. Three winners will be chosen. John, the owner of Maine Oyster Co. will be holding his event on Wednesday, where essentially Santa will be coming to bayside. Any child in the area that sent in a request to receive a gift, will be paired with a patron to purchase it. A space will be transformed into the “North Pole” where Santa will give out the gifts to the children. We hope to reach as many people as possible with this event and inspire positive change in the area.
