2016 Military Coffee DriveDecember 1, 2017 (Published: June 27, 2016)
Time to support the troops! Our annual Military Coffee Drive takes place June 27 – July 3.
For every 12-ounce bag of coffee purchased at our Crimson Cup Coffee Houses in Clintonville and Upper Arlington, we’ll send a bag of fresh-roasted beans to active-duty U.S. Military personnel serving overseas.
“We consider it an honor and a privilege to give back to the troops who sacrifice so much for our country,” said Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert. “Starting the day with a great cup of Java can make all the difference when facing a grueling day.”
In addition to the drive, Crimson Cup sends coffee and tea to troops throughout the year to offer a little piece of their hometown community while they are away. Anyone who wants us to send coffee to a friend or loved one in the Armed Forces can send the soldier, sailor or airman’s name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get a bag of coffee to them.
Crimson Cup’s Military Coffee Drive has resonated among our coffee house customers. Together, we’ve donated over a hundred pounds of coffee to the troops, even some in very remote locations.
