Our annual Military Coffee Drive is scheduled for June 24 through June 30. For every 12-ounce bag of coffee purchased at Crimson Cup Coffee Houses in Columbus and Tallmadge, Ohio, we will send one bag of fresh-roasted coffee beans to active-duty U.S. Military personnel serving overseas.
“We are honored 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 Joe can make all the difference when facing a demanding day.”
He said the annual drive has resonated with coffee house customers, who enjoy a chance to support the troops when purchasing their favorite coffee. “Last year’s drive allowed us to send 85 pounds of coffee to the troops, including some in very remote locations.” he said.
“We make it as simple as possible for our customers to join us in giving back,” he added. “All you need to do is buy a bag of coffee at one of our three Crimson Cup Coffee Houses – at 4541 North High St. in Clintonville, at 2468 Northwest Blvd. in Upper Arlington or at 116 Tallmadge Circle in Tallmadge, Ohio. We’ll send a matching bag to the troops.”
In addition to the drive, Crimson Cup sends coffee and tea to service personnel 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,” said Vice President of Marketing Melissa Rogner.
