Kitsap Bank recently announced its commitment of $10,000 to the renovation of a new Coffee Oasis location in Tacoma. Through this new facility, Coffee Oasis will be able to provide services to homeless and low-to-moderate income youth in the Pierce area, including providing job training through its café. Kitsap Bank is a longtime supporter of The Coffee Oasis and their mission to help change the world for homeless youth in our communities. In the last three years, Kitsap Bank has donated $30,000 to help renovate Coffee Oasis locations throughout Kitsap County.
