One month after Hurricane Ida hit Louisiana, Community Coffee is bringing relief


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – September 29 is National Coffee Day and exactly one month after Hurricane Ida came ashore in Louisiana.

With that in mind, Community Coffee is stepping up to help those recovering from the Category 4 storm.

From now until October 28, the local coffee roaster and distributor is teaming up with The Salvation Army.

Anytime you buy Community Coffee between now and Oct. 28, 10% of retail sales will go to help The Salvation Army’s Hurricane Ida relief efforts in the state.

Community Coffee is going to donate up to $250,000 to this cause.

“Our state has a long road ahead, but we know our communities are strong and are already coming together to support each other,” said Community Coffee Company President and CEO David Belanger. “It’s inspiring how Louisianans lock arms and take care of one another when disaster hits. We are proud to call Louisiana home.”
