Two Huge Ways You Can Help our Friends in Houston #HOUSTONSTRONG

People of Common Grounds, 

          This week our hearts are heavy as we watch our friends and family in Houston and the surrounding areas experience the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey. In response, here are two huge ways you can help

1. Bring Supplies to the Show This Friday Night! (Sept. 1, 7:30-10:30pm) SUPPLY LIST BELOW

          This Friday we are hosting a show with local artists Honest Men and Glenmerle. It's going to be a wonderful night of local music and community. Common Grounds will be accepting the following physical donations at the show in a partnership with University Baptist Church and Ecclessia Houston at the show. We will accept donations from 7:30-10:30pm.

2. Buy an Iced Cowboy Coffee (9/2-9/4)

Could it get any easier? 

       Common Grounds will be donating the full proceeds of every iced Cowboy Coffee purchased in our shop on 8th Street from Saturday (9/2) until Monday (9/4) to Global Giving's Foundation for Hurricane Harvey, which seeks to aid in both short and long term relief to victims.

      Our hearts are with our friends and family in Houston. Please join us in doing anything you can to help and support the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Thanks,

Common Grounds
