A Richland coffee shop known for serving good coffee and supporting good causes will close its doors at the end of the month.

Sharehouse Coffee ends its four-year run Oct. 30.

The shop near the intersection of Keene Road and Queensgate Drive is an outreach ministry of Bethel Church. It’s known around the Tri-Cities for being a relaxed place to sip coffee with friends while supporting a culture built on giving to those less fortunate.

“I think it’s a big loss for the community as a whole. It’s a bummer. I’m sure someone else will open there but I don’t know anyone else who will be able to duplicate that same mission and feel and spirit,” said Jonathan Dickey of Richland, a loyal customer.

Each quarter, Sharehouse donated a portion of its revenue to a different charity.

Nonprofits supported in the past include Grace Clinic, Union Gospel Mission, Tri-Cities Pregnancy Center, Jericho Road Ministries, Heart for the Fatherless, the local chapter of Relay for Life and World Relief.

Others supported were global charities championed by local residents and employees, such as this quarter’s recipient, World Orphans.
