The Dutch Bros. Coffee drive-thru kiosk in Granite Bay said it raised $4,540 for the families of three young adults who died Jan. 10 when their vehicle was hit by a wrong-way driver on Interstate 80.
The families of Matthew Azar, 20; Kendra Langham, 18; and Mathew Beardwitt, 18, will each receive $1,513.
Mattie Place, co-owner of the Granite Bay Dutch Bros. outlet, said in a statement that Azar was a daily customer, “someone we all got to know, and he had been coming through since day one.” She also noted that Langham and Beardwitt worked nearby.
The Dutch Bros. location, at 8663 Auburn Folsom Road, donated proceeds from all its sales on Monday, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
