The Astoria Coffee House & Bistro has donated $1,392.51, representing 3 percent of 2013 sales at the Astoria Coffee Bar, located in the first floor of Towler Hall, to the CCC Foundation Scholarship Fund. This fund contributes annually to the foundations ability to support student scholarships that will total $92,763 in 2014-15.
Local scholarships play an increasingly important role in access to higher education and in student success, administrators say. Scholarship recipients are able to focus on academic achievement as well as minimize college-related debt.
The Astoria Coffee Bar operates from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. In addition to a full range of coffee drinks, it provides snacks and take-away sandwiches and salads.
