A Cup For The Cradle

A Cup For The Cradle

Due to current health guidelines, The Cradle has had to shift how we hold our social events as well as our fundraising initiatives. The Cradle’s Associates Board is the host of our Annual Night for the Nursery – a fun-filled social gathering that helps financially support The Cradle’s 24/7 Infant Nursery.

Being creative and agile, our Associates Board has partnered with Hansa Coffee Roasters to bring you “A Cup for The Cradle”. This fundraiser will sell The Cradle’s special blend of whole-bean coffee “Family Blend”. Hansa Coffee Roasters is a quality-driven roaster and retailer based in Libertyville, IL. They specialize in coffees sourced from small, quality-focused families and cooperatives around the world.

If you love coffee, or want to gift a bag to someone who does, please visit to purchase a 1-Lb or 5-Lb bag of whole bean coffee, custom roasted for The Cradle. Your order will be shipped directly to your address – or the address to the person you are gifting.

50% of proceeds from every sale go directly towards supporting The Cradle's services, including expectant parent services and counseling, the nursery, and post-adoption support services

Kevin Kane, co-owner of Hansa coffee says, “Great coffee changes the conversation.” At The Cradle, we believe that #AdoptionChangesEverything. We decided this partnership to raise necessary funds for The Cradle was a perfect blend (pun intended).

Coffee, conversation and connection. Join us in supporting Family Blend. Let’s have “A Cup for The Cradle”.
