February is the month of love — something one local business is trying to spread through a "get social" campaign that will give 10 percent of sales to a local nonprofit.
Caffe Amouri owner Michael Amouri launched "Get Social Month" in February as a way to give back to the Shepherd's Center of Oakton-Vienna "to enhance the lives of seniors in Vienna and Oakton."
The nonprofit, which serves seniors in Vienna, Oakton, Merrifield, Dunn Loring, Falls Church and Reston, provides a range of services to older residents, from classes and day trips to providing transportation to medical appointments and grocery stores.
The center was named the then-Vienna Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce's nonprofit of the year in 2012.
Show proof of the social activity on a smartphone, tablet or computer at the counter to make the donation.
The charity component is not the only part of the shop's "Get Social" efforts — it's planning a wide range of community events for February too. Find out more here.
