Patrons will enjoy freshly roasted hot or cold-brewed coffee from Ironclad alongside delicious, hand-made treats from C&C’s Cinnamon Rolls and Idle Hands Bread Company. Suggested donations will be in place, but guests are encouraged to “LoveRVA” as generously as possible.

Purchases this month will directly impact kids in the Richmond area, specifically the students of Rohoma Sims, a third grade teacher at Overby-Sheppard Elementary School in Northside.

Hear from Sims herself about how the funds will be used:

“My name is Rohoma Sims. I am from the small town of South Boston, Virginia. I am a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University where I had the honor of receiving my bachelor in Interdisciplinary Studies of Elementary Education and Master’s of Teaching.

I became a teacher for Richmond City Public School at Overby-Sheppard Elementary because it is the place I feel I am touching lives and making a difference. Everyday is an adventure and I enjoy taking it with my students each year.

Donations would be a blessing for my students. Most of my students struggle with purchasing the school supplies needed to have a successful year. I typically buy supplies myself which can become quite expensive. I also try to give my students real life hands on experiences which can be very expensive. Any donations given to us will go towards school supplies and materials for activities. Anything given will be appreciated and put to great use.

Thanks in advance!”

The event kicks off at 8:00 AM at Ironclad Coffee Roasters, located at 2904 W. Moore Street in Scott’s Addition.
