An acai shop near TCU’s campus is finding ways to give back to the TCU community.

Originally founded by a mother and daughter in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Mamaka Bowls made its way to Fort Worth in June 2021 and has been conducting profit shares ever since.

Most recently, Mamaka partnered with TCU’s International Justice Mission Club, whose mission is to bring awareness of the current state of modern-day slavery.

“We actually sent that money to IJM South Asia chapter just because they are an IJM chapter that’s most in need,” Flavin said. “So the money that we made through the Mamaka bowls, smoothies and coffees went to South Asia.”

“Any organization especially through TCU can contact us if they are interested in a profit share,” said Mamaka employee Kara Flavin. “We usually do this with organizations such as sororities and fraternities as well as just other clubs on campus just to raise money them.”

Mamaka is actively seeking new organizations to partner with. For more information contact Mamaka WestBend at (682) 707-5571.
