Caffe Amouri, BRAWS Supporting Homeless Women, Girls

BRAWS is partnering with Caffe Amouri on Valentine’s Day to spread "love" to women and girls in the community. BRAWS is a Vienna-based, volunteer-driven 501c3 nonprofit organization that supports homeless women and girls by providing them with overlooked basic needs. They will receive the new bras, underwear, and feminine hygiene products that will be donated by the Caffe Amouri community.

“Most of all, businesses like Caffe Amouri are key to raising awareness in our community about this critical need for homeless women and girls - and we are incredibly grateful for their support,” said Holly Seibold – Executive Director of BRAWS.

Area residents who bring any of the items listed below will receive $1 off their order: Brand new (tag on) bras; unopened boxes of tampons, pads and pantyliners for all ages and sizes; unopened packages of underwear.

Instead of the standard 12, 16 or 20 oz. cups, the drinks on Valentine’s Day will be A – B – and C Cups!
