According to Smoothie Q’s website, the company is “committed to community service and giving back in means of feeding the hungry, families who need assistance.” The Andersons ask customers to share the names of local families in need by adding the name to Smoothie Q’s drop box.
The owners will donate a portion of their proceeds to one family in need each week, as well as two organizations — Joni & Friends and The Life House.
