A portion of the sales of 24 ounce coffees sold by Love’s on National Coffee Day will go to help sick children.
National Coffee Day is Thurs., Sept. 29, and in celebration of the holiday, Love’s Travel Stops will donate $1 of every 24 ounce coffee or cappuccino that is purchased on Sept. 29 and 30 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals). All of Love’s more than 390 locations nationwide will take part in this two day promotion.
“Love’s Travel Stops has supported Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for 18 years and every year our store teams do an outstanding job raising funds for this noble cause,” said Jenny Love Meyer, vice president of communications for Love’s. “On average, we sell more than 57,000 cups of coffee per day. Giving a portion of the proceeds from two days’ worth of coffee sales is another way we, and our Customers, can contribute more dollars to hospitals that perform life-saving miracles daily.”
For a limited time, Customers can enjoy the Guatemalan Highland coffee brew, as well as Love’s signature house, dark roast, Brazilian and decaffeinated brews. Customers can also fill up with pumpkin spice cappuccino for a limited time. French vanilla, sugar-free caramel pecan, white chocolate and cocoa blends of cappuccino are also available. The cost of a 24 ounce coffee or cappuccino is $1.89.
Love’s annual campaign to raise funds for CMN Hospitals began on Aug. 26. Donations collected at more than 390 Love’s locations across 40 states go to the partner hospital in that community to help local children. Customers can support their local hospitals through Sept. 30 by purchasing a CMN Hospitals Miracle Balloon for $1, $5 or $20. Many stores still have events like cookouts, golf tournaments, yard sales and more scheduled to help bring in additional donations. Love’s is more than halfway to its 2016 store campaign goal of $2.3 million.
Since 1998, Love’s has raised more than $14 million for the nonprofit. Of the 170 CMN Hospitals members throughout North America, 99 benefit from Love’s annual campaign.
