Ground Coffee Collection for Penn Daw Fire Station

Fall has arrived with cooler days and crisp nights. Isn’t it wonderful? Halloween will soon be here and as always, our Belle Haven neighbors will be celebrating at the circle at 4:30pm on Sunday, October 31.

The Belle Haven Community Outreach committee will be collecting ground coffee for our first responders at the Penn Daw Fire Station, who will be joining us at the Circle for our Halloween Celebration!

HOW TO DONATE

  1. We will collect coffee at the Halloween Parade on October 31. A bin will be available for you to put your contribution in.
  2. Drop off coffee in advance from Saturday, October 23 through Saturday, October 30. We have two drop-off locations:

Peggy Baucom
6223 Tally-Ho Lane
(Front porch) 

Margie Griffith
6039 Edgewood Terrace
(Right front porch)

Please help us make this an especially successful year as we need to show our first responders how much their service means to all of us. We have had the pleasure of delivering the coffee for the past couple of years and see the smiles on their faces when we show them how much we, in Belle Haven, appreciate what they do for us.
