This fall, the company will donate proceeds up to $150,000 from the sale of Community® coffee products to benefit flood and hurricane relief efforts through the Salvation Army.

 “We provided more than 558,424 cups of Community® coffee and tea along with equipment to flood evacuees and first responders in Texas and Florida, but knew we could do even more to help these communities rebuild,” said David Belanger, president & CEO of Community Coffee Company.  “This initiative will help us support those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma the best way we know how—through our coffee.”

In Texas, Community Coffee Company will donate 10% of proceeds (up to $100,000) from the sale of all Community® coffee products to benefit flood relief efforts through Sunday, October 15, 2017.
