Kimberly School Earns More Than $3,000 from Community Cash for Schools® program

Kimberly, AL - At a ceremony this morning, Mortimer Jordan High School earns $3,193 from the Community Cash for Schools® program by partnering with local businesses, restaurants and parents to collect Community® coffee UPCs or proof of purchase labels. This year, more than 870 schools across the region collected more than 3 million UPCs.

Mortimer Jordan earned the second highest amount of funds in the Community Cash for Schools program that spans across 10 states. Local public and private schools have earned over $4 million from the Community Cash for Schools program since the program's inception, now in its 25th year.

 

Community Coffee Company allows local educators to direct these funds to programs and projects that best serve Louisiana’s youth. Mortimer Jordan High School plans to utilize its funds for its band program.

 

“We’ve found that educators can be quite inventive and we’re proud to be a part of funding playground equipment, textbooks, computers, white boards, musical instruments and much more,” said Jodi Conachen, Community Coffee Company spokesperson. “The program allows community members to have a delicious cup of Community coffee while helping their local school educate our future.”

 

In support of the Community Cash for Schools program and in honor for the program’s 25th year, Community Coffee Company held a sweepstakes to increase purchase of triple value UPC codes. Three sweepstakes winners received a Mercedes-Benz C250 sedan which was awarded during the event. This year’s winners are Susan Meaux from Mandeville, Louisiana, Jacalyn Hanly Dugas from Metairie, Louisiana, and Vivian Chicola from Lafayette, Louisiana.
