FORT COLLINS, COLO, Sept. 6, 2016 – The Human Bean, a community-oriented drive-thru coffee business in northern Colorado, invites the public to participate in its Guest Barista Day on Thursday, Sept. 8 at the Midtown Fort Collins Location, 1822 S. College Ave. 10 percent of all profits generated during the day will be returned to The Kayla Foundation, and the organization’s director, Lisa Adsit, and committee member, Amy Rentel, will serve as the Guest Baristas from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Kayla Foundation provides students within the Poudre School District with financial support so that they may participate fully in their school’s music programs. In addition, the foundation helps the school district and local nonprofits to enhance their music programs. Areas covered include uniforms, musical supplies, music therapy, retreat costs, instruments and much more.

“Supporting the many remarkable causes in our community is what we enjoy most,” said Frank Sherman, owner of The Human Bean. “Music is such a fundamental aspect of education, and we’re thrilled to support The Kayla Foundation’s efforts to provide that.”

The Kayla Foundation is a Fund of The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and was founded in April 2009, two years after Kayla Marie Adsit was killed in a tragic car accident at the age of 17. Her parents wished to continue her love of community and music, which initiated the idea of The Kayla Foundation. Since its creation, the organization has given $70,000 in grants to 32 different local schools, two district-wide choirs and seven other nonprofits in the area. More than 22,000 children have been impacted by these grants.
