Community Partner Spotlight: Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

In Blog, Community, Community Partner Spotlight, News // on November 7th, 2016 // by // No comment

We’re gearing up for Election Day tomorrow (caffeinate and vote!), which means it’s the perfect time to spotlight our friends at Kentuckians for the Commonwealth (KFTC).

They’ve been working hard this election season to increase voter participation; organizing rides, working towards restoring voting rights, and educating Kentuckians about voter issues. The Jefferson County chapter was a sponsor of the Metro Council candidate debates earlier this year, and released their voting guide so voters can read more about their state and local candidates.

But getting out the vote is just one of the many things KFTC does for Kentuckians.

Louisiana Flood Relief – Heine Brothers’ & the American Red Cross

In Blog, Community, News // on August 22nd, 2016 // by // No comment

 

Devastating floods in Louisiana have displaced thousands of people – people that have lost everything. In some parishes, around 75% of homes have been called a “total loss”. The American Red Cross is estimating that they’ll serve 1.2 million meals during their flood efforts – and Heine Brothers’ wants to help.

For each LARGE drink sold at all Heine Brothers’ and Vint Coffee locations this week, we’ll donate 25¢ to the American Red Cross for their Louisiana Flood Relief Efforts.

Wood & Twine: the name is deceptively straight forward for the intricate string art installations that best friends Jessica England and Melody Niemann create for their Louisville-based company. Right now, you can check out their largest piece – a six foot Kentucky outline – brightening the walls of our Northfield store.

Heine Brothers’ Coffee has long been a community partner with Olmsted Parks Conservancy – that’s even how Mike Mays and Chuck Schnatter, HB co-owners, met. The parks here in Louisville – Olmsted Parks Conservancy with Metro Parks, The Parklands of Floyd’s Fork, along with Waterfront Park – are an important part of our community. Not only do they give us a place to play, they are also home to thousands of species, cut our carbon footprint, and bring a high quality of life to the city.

Denim Day Press Conference with The Center for Women and Families

We were honored to host our friends and community partners from the Center for Women and Families at HB-Douglass Loop for their Denim Day press conference – bringing awareness and correcting misperceptions about sexual assault.

Speakers included:

  • Marta Miranda, CEO of the Center for Women and Families
  • Amanda Corzine, RN – SANE Nurse at U of L Hospital
  • Mike Mays, President & Co-owner of Heine Brothers’ Coffee
  • David Yates, President of the Louisville Metro Council
  • Patti Barron, a sexual assault survivor
  • Lieutenant Carolyn Nunn, Commander of the Louisville Police Department’s Special Victims Unit

Denim Day began in Italy in 1999 when the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans; the court concluded that she must have helped take them off, implying consent. Women of the Italian legislature protested by wearing jeans the next day, and the observance of Denim Day worldwide had begun. Today, all around the world, organizations coordinate community-wide Denim Day events to show support of survivors, and to raise awareness of, and correct misperceptions about, sexual assault crimes.

Heine Brothers’ is proud to be a long time partner of the Center for Women and Families. We’d love to live in a world where sexual assault no longer exists – but until we get there, Heine Brothers’ will support The Center for Women & Families in the work they do preventing assault and supporting victims.
