Claw Coffee donates a portion of our profits to Winter Kids. Skiing and snowboarding has been been major part of my life. Winter Kids mission is to bring promote outdoor activities to the youth of Maine. If you ask someone from Maine how they feel about winter you're bound to get 1 of 2 answers. They either love it, or they're counting down the days until summer. I side with the former, and want to ensure our future generations get every opportunity to get outside in the cold, dark, and snowy winter months. This is why Claw Coffee is a proud sponsor of Winter Kids.
WinterKids helps children develop healthy lifelong habits through education and fun, outdoor winter activity. We create opportunities for children to be active, vibrant and healthy in the outdoors.
WinterKids began in 1997 as part of the Ski Maine Association with a Learn to Ski program for fifth graders. With the increasing rates of childhood obesity and the downward trend in physical fitness in Maine and across the country, there was an opportunity to help children and families enjoy healthy and fun outdoor winter lifestyles while nurturing a connection to the natural environment, at home, at school, and in the communities in which they live.
In 2000, WinterKids became an independent non-profit and continues to develop and expand innovative health education programs for kids in the winter, and year-round.
