We’re happy to support our troops all year round with great tasting coffee. It is especially great to know that those comforts of home are also there during the holidays. Over the past month employees have also been volunteering their time to send some holiday cheer to our service men and woman.
In our Knoxville, Tennesee facility employees used their company sponsored volunteer time to make cards for the American Red Cross’ Holiday Mail for Heroes program. The cards, handcrafted by volunteers across the country, are sent to service men and women, their families and veterans all over the world. Employees crafted cards and messages of thanks. In total they made 515 cards!
At our Keurig facility in Reading, Massachusetts employees decorated 190 Christmas Stockings and put together 380 grab bags. Both the Keurig and Green Mountain Coffee brands have a strong relationship with the Pease Greeters Organizations through volunteer events like this and brewer and coffee donations.
This effort was particularly meaningful to the Reading, MA employees. The stockings and bags are being delivered to a Unit from Reading currently serving in Afghanistan.
Thank you to the American Red Cross and Pease Greeters for providing opportunities like these so that we can give back in a special way during the holidays!
