Cumberland Farms donates 10 cents from every coffee or Chill Zone beverage purchased on May 18 to the Corporal Eugene Cole Memorial Fund.
Cumberland Farms is hosting a fundraiser for the Corporal Eugene Cole Memorial Fund on Friday, May 18 at all of the brand’s 43-retail locations across the state of Maine. On that day, the company will donate 10 cents for every hot and iced coffee and Chill Zone beverage purchased to the Corporal Eugene Cole Memorial Fund.
Eugene Cole, 61, a Somerset County Sheriff’s Officer, was killed while on duty in Norridgewock last month. Cole, who entered law enforcement later in life after closing his television repair shop in 2000, was well known and respected by the community he gave his life to serve and protect.
“As part of the Maine community, we were deeply saddened by this tragedy,” said Ari Haseotes, CEO of Cumberland Farms. “We hope this fundraiser will help Corporal Cole’s family during this very difficult time.”
