A few months ago, ketk brought you Brooke Reynolds’ story.
Reynolds, a UT Tyler student, started the Sisterhood of the Travleing Dress with the goal of giving every girl a chance at a nice prom.
One local coffee shop decide to help her give back in a big way.
Wood and Bean Coffee Shop in Chapel Hill has been a dress drop- off location for the past few months.
The owner wanted to find another way to help.
And food will do it.
Customers were able to come out and buy some bbq for $5, with all proceeds going towards Brooke’s ministry.
“If we can get $500 given to her as a donation we will be super excited, and I know she will be, too,” said Bridgett Schriefer, owner of Wood and Bean. “Every dollar for her counts. She has a huge heart for it and I have a huge heart for this community, so it was important for me to be able to be apart of that.”
So far, 134 dresses have been collected.
If you would like to help, donations can be dropped off at Wood and Bean, 12971 State Hwy 64 E, Tyler, on Saturdays or at House of Sunshine on County Road 2225 in Tyler during the week.
