Award Winning Specialty Coffee
August 12-13; Charlottesville, VA — On both Saturday, August 12 and Sunday, August 13 from 10 AM to 1 PM, Mudhouse Specialty Coffee Roasters and Bluebird Company will be collecting school supplies and operating a mobile bookstore at their Crozet location (5793 The Square, Crozet, VA 22932). On those days, there are two ways to receive 15% off your Mudhouse order—show a receipt from the mobile book trailer or bring a school supply donation (offers are not combinable and are one time use only). These collected books will be donated to the Free Book Bus. The school supplies will be donated to local schools.
ABOUT BLUEBIRD COMPANY
The co-owners of Bluebird Company met through the small business network of Crozet and immediately started hosting pop up markets together to encourage and support a variety of female entrepreneurs in and around Crozet. What started as a small side hustle quickly became a dream for a shared retail space to house our two businesses, Bluebird Bookstop and Fancy & Nell.
Their vision from the start has been a place for us to house their businesses, for Bluebird to ship out of the back and a place where they can bring in novelty products by all of the awesome female owned businesses they continue to come across. Their mission remains constant which is to encourage, empower, and support female entrepreneurs in whatever stage of their business journey.
ABOUT FREE BOOK BUS
The Free Book Bus is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2018 to serve Charlottesville, Albemarle, and the surrounding area. Our first mission is to enable all children and young people to have a home library. We focus on children and young adults who have less access to books. Our secondary focus is encouragement of reading for all at public events.
The book bus has given out over 39,000 books to area families since 2018. The Free Book Bus makes about 125 stops every year at places like Boys & Girls Clubs, apartment complexes, food pantries, and public housing. Some of our more recent projects include a multilingual coloring book to serve recently arrived refugee families, and an essential needs shelf to help bus guests obtain personal hygiene and cleaning supplies. We are very grateful for all of the support we receive from the local community!
