FoCo Cafe: The Pletchers

(From top to bottom) Christine, Mattison and Maggie Pletcher were introduced to FoCo Cafe after their babysitter Annie Freyshlag told them about the great volunteering opportunities available for younger children. With daughters in 4th and 2nd grade, Christine was looking for somewhere she could "volunteer with kids at this age". At FoCo Cafe, the community-driven environment was a perfect fit and both Mattison and Maggie who both love the cafe and consider it "our favorite restaurant". When volunteering, Mattison and Maggie are usually wrapping silverware, watering the plants or harvesting greens for the kitchen. To help share the work of FoCo Cafe, the Pletchers are also involved with the nationwide Kids Care Club that focuses on different organizations helping their communities. (Davis Bonner | Collegian)
