Grounds for Hope Purchase Proceeds Will Provide Clean Water

from Living Water International

, part of Trinity Green Trails, is more than a coffee shop. The café provides hope for people in need around the world. With each cup of coffee or item purchased, a portion of the proceeds are given to organizations that help children, families, and communities worldwide through the café’s Project Grounds program. This program is part of the ongoing mission of the café.

This year Grounds for Hope is supporting Living Water International, which exists to help communities acquire desperately needed clean water. Grounds for Hope plans to raise more than $50,000. Part of these funds will help build water wells in Central America.

“Nearly 783 million people around the world lack access to clean water,” said Dan Grissom, manager of Grounds for Hope Café and Trinity Lutheran Church pastor. “We wanted to raise awareness of the world water crisis in our café and church community. Supporting Living Water International through our Project Grounds program has been doing just that.”

To purchase from Grounds for Hope Café and support Living Water International, visit the cafe at 2701 Maple Ave. The Project Grounds program is also benefitting Feed My Starving Children this year. The organization works to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world.
