Coffee, Community and the Kelowna Women’s Shelter

Third Space Coffee in Kelowna is all about creating a place of community and connection for people. Being a not-for-profit cafe allows Third Space to creatively engage with our community. From December 14 – 18th, Third Space Coffee did just that, by committing all profits from that week, to a local charity, the Kelowna Women’s Shelter. The baristas were so excited about this initiative that they joined in by contributing all of their tips from that week as well. Ken Stober, Carlee Turner, Corey Siewert, Amanda Kovatch and Scott Lanigan were thrilled to present a cheque in the amount of $2685.43 to the Shelter. “At Third Space, we believe elevating values, like generosity, strengthens our community,” Scott Lanigan noted. “And we believe it has to be simple. Like knowing that when you buy a coffee or a sandwich, it will make a difference in someone’s life.”

“We’re so grateful to have the ongoing support of community partners like Third Space. Their commitment, and the support of their customers helps provide a safe refuge, and support services for women and their children fleeing abuse.” said Karen Mason, the Executive Director of the shelter. “When you think about that in the bigger picture and what that means, that’s incredibly powerful.”

The Kelowna Women’s Shelter is a place that gives emergency transitional housing, counselling, and educational opportunities to females in need in the area.
