Local public and private schools have earned millions of dollars from the Community Cash for Schools® program, now in its 26th year. The program helps participating schools earn money simply by collecting UPC labels from Community® brand products. The schools can use the money any way they choose, whether that is playground equipment, computers, educational supplies or other items they really need.  The program is open to local public and private schools from Pre-K through 12th grade.

Community Coffee Company is committed to supporting the local communities where we do business and dedicates between 2.5% – 3.0% of its pretax income to socially responsible charitable programs, with education and the Community Cash for Schools® program being at the center of the Company’s philanthropic program.  At an event this morning, Community Coffee Company recognized the top earning schools.
