Company Partners with Folds of Honor to Support Military Families
Baton Rouge, LA, May 2019 — Community Coffee Company, the largest family-owned and operated coffee brand in the United States, is pleased to announce the launch of its American Classic™ blend—a special medium roast in honor of the men and women who have served and still serve our country.
From May through July 2019, Community Coffee Company will donate a portion of proceeds to Folds of Honor for every bag and single-serve box of Community® American Classic coffee purchased. Founded in 2007, Folds of Honor is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.
“There is no higher respect to be given than to those who have served this great nation and who have made the personal sacrifice,” said David Belanger, president and CEO of Community Coffee Company. “Our goal is to support these impacted families by providing educational opportunities that not only enrich the lives of those impacted but the communities they serve.”
“Since its inception, Folds of Honor has awarded nearly 20,000 educational scholarships with recipients in all 50 states. This would not be possible without the support from partners like Community Coffee,” said Major Dan Rooney, founder and CEO of Folds of Honor. “The company’s longstanding support of our servicemen and servicewomen through the Folds of Honor program serves as a testament to Community Coffee’s dedication to making a difference one family at a time.”
For every Community® American Classic coffee product that is purchased, Community Coffee Company will donate to Folds of Honor (up to a total of $25,000). To learn more and to purchase online, please visit CommunityCoffee.com/foldsofhonor.
