Books-A-Million Proudly Kicks Off 17th Coffee for the Troops Program
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- It’s time for the 17th Coffee for the Troops program, a biannual joint effort by Books-A-Million and Soldiers’ Angels to honor veterans, deployed troops, and VA hospitals with the gift of freshly ground coffee.
The latest Coffee for the Troops event runs from September 25 through October 23, 2021. During this time, Books-A-Million customers can donate a bag of Joe Muggs Coffee when they check out at the store or café and personalize their donations with messages of gratitude. Soldiers’ Angels handles distribution of the coffee, which is always met with heartfelt thanks.
“This fall’s Coffee for the Troops campaign couldn’t come at a better time,” said Amy Palmer, president and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels. “With everything our service members have been dealing with—from the ongoing pandemic to the situation in Afghanistan—a moment to stop and enjoy a cup of coffee will be a much-needed pick-me-up. We are so grateful to Books-A-Million and their customers for their continued support of this campaign.”
Since its initial run in 2012, Coffee for the Troops has continually surpassed its donation goals.
