With a strong belief in community and collaboration, Linda Bruins called it fantastic that Evergreen A United Neighbourhood is one of two charities benefiting from the annual Community Coffee Card program that started on Tuesday in Thunder Bay.

“I believe in working together for the greater good,” said Bruins. “And it’s Christmas, it’s time to celebrate.”

In it’s sixth year, the Community Coffee Card program is a way for local coffee shops to come together “in a spirit of unity and solidarity to raise money for local charities,” said Brian Hamilton, owner of the Bean Fiend.
