I did my “Perk It Forward” event today Gaiser
Middle School. My younger daughter transferred in May of last year. She was very much in need of the amazing support & awesome staff that work Gaiser.

My sister-in-law is the head of the SCP program there & was able to filter her right in with all of the love & support she needed. Being that she just turned 13, she’s definitely kept the staff here on their toes & I am grateful every day for their kindness & compassion for my daughter.

This school is packed full of phenomenal humans that deserve way more than just a coffee cart but I’m so thankful that I had the opportunity to give them this gift today. It’s state testing week so these teachers & staff really needed a perk 😆

Pacific Perks Perkologist since 2021


I worked as a visit specialist for a couple of years, hand in hand with several social workers and DCYF (Department of Children, Youth & Families). When I was given the opportunity to serve someone/someplace with a complimentary espresso cart to give back, it was a no-brainer on who I wanted to choose. Our social workers daily go above and beyond in their jobs to try and keep kids safe in our community. It was an honor to serve them at their “Soup”er Bowl luncheon.

The Pacific Perks team and Saving Grace founders
Annually, in December, we pick a local charity to give back to. This year, our team chose Saving Grace Maternity Home. With your help, we donated $10 from every Eggnog/Cider Upgrade sold in the month of December. On January 14th, we presented a check for $1070 to Cindy and Skip Sorum, the founders of Saving Grace Maternity Home – A residential home experience for single, young, homeless women in an unplanned or crises pregnancy or parenting a child under the age of one.
