Global Goods and Coffee Shop
opened this spring in Olde Town Arvada with all the trappings of a coffeehouse -- but with a different goal. Global Goods is run by an international nonprofit organization, Global Refuge
, that provides immediate aid where it is needed, without getting tangled up in the bureaucratic process. Current initiatives include providing water to Syrian refugees, sending water-purification supplies to Lebanon, supporting resettlement and feeding programs in Uganda, and training and treating malaria-affected communities. Global Goods aims to help the cause by raising awareness, selling goods made by refugees, and generating funding.
