Bitty & Beau’s coffee in Wilmington is hoping to take the top spot for a national award. Voting ends Tuesday for CNN’s top 10 heroes, highlighting people who are changing the world. Amy Wright started the shop two years ago to employ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“We feel like people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have been in the shadows for a really long time. We feel like what we have done here has helped bring them out of the shadows. And we just want to continue that momentum,” said Amy Wright, owner.
Voting ends at 11:59 PT on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
