Coffee For The Troops started out as a way of helping our friends at Operation Fetch . We didn’t expect the effect this donation would have on the soldiers, but coffee has an impact. It is a way of telling a soldier viscerally that they are important and that you’re thinking about him or her. The expressions of thanks we have gotten have been truly humbling. We feel that opening up a conduit for people to give has inspired many people to express their love and support for the men and women that so selflessly serve our country.
In past years we ran this donation privately. Members of the community were so interested to be a part of it that we opened a public local campaign. In our public campaign we asked our friends and customers to donate coffee using Gander’s Choice exclusively so that the proceeds would go directly to these organization. Last year, we were able to donate about 800lbs of coffee. We would like to go above and beyond and reach 1500 lbs by the end of August.
Donation levels are...
- $16 for 1 lb
- $80 for 5 lbs
- $960.00 for 60pd (1 box)
All shipping and taxes are included for every $16.00 donation. For
every 60 lb donation, a grinder will be included. In all cases, a third of the purchase price is donated directly to the organization.
Thank you for your generous donation!
