Coffee lovers in Davis and Woodland can help a local 9-year-old fight leukemia by supporting Shake It For Brooke.

Starting Monday and continuing through March 21, Dutch Bros. Coffee stores will donate proceeds from the sale of Dutch Frost shakes to the Beaubier family to aid in Brooke’s treatment.

Brooke, the second of four sisters, is an athletic, happy girl who loves soccer and was recently diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. She has started treatment and will spend the next month in the hospital, which is the start of a 2 1/2-year treatment plan.

“We are ready to fight,” said Josh Beaubier, Brooke’s dad. “We have already had so much support, and my family and I will never be able to thank everyone enough.”

Dutch Bros. can be found at 980 Olive Drive in Davis and 1332 E. Main St. in Woodland.

Dutch Bros. customers also helped those in need on Valentine’s Day, donating 3,639 pounds of nonperishable food to the Yolo Food Bank. Food was collected from 5 a.m. to midnight at the local drive-throughs.

“This is the fourth year that this food drive has been conducted and we are very appreciative of Dutch Bros. staff for organizing the drive and to their patrons for their support of the Food Bank and its mission,” said Kevin Sanchez, executive director.

A total of 14,443 pounds of food was collected throughout the Sacramento region, Dutch Bros. announced.
