September 12, 2016, Baton Rouge, LA — For regional favorite Community Coffee Company, the flood relief effort in south Louisiana is far from over. From September 12 to October 2, for every Community® coffee purchase of specially-marked products, the company will donate 10% of proceeds to the rebuilding of its great home state. The Rebuilding Louisiana campaign contribution will support flood relief efforts through the Salvation Army by providing funds up to $100,000.

Consumers can support Community Coffee Company’s relief efforts by purchasing specially-marked Community® coffee products at retail grocery locations in Louisiana and Mississippi, including 16oz firm pack Dark Roast, Medium Roast, Between Roast and Coffee & Chicory.

Plus, with every purchase of a 20oz or 24oz cup of Community® coffee at convenience stores in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Northshore, New Orleans, Alexandria, Houma and Lake Charles, the company will donate 10% of those proceeds as well.
