27 years ago, Community Coffee started the Cash for Schools program to enable loyal customers to give back to their local schools. Over those 27 years, schools have earned new textbooks, computers, whiteboards, campus gardens, playground equipment, and even a natural bird sanctuary for a science class. Each year schools earn thousands of dollars to support the education of our youth – – just think what that amount of money could mean for your school! This year, 826 schools (Pre-K through 12th grade) participated and earned over $368,000.
Public and private schools across the area have earned millions of dollars for their local programs through the Community Cash for Schools program, which has seen continued success over the last 27 years.
Schools earn money by collecting UPC labels from Community® brand products, including coffee and tea products.
Schools allocate the money earned toward initiatives and projects such as new computers, textbooks, equipment, whiteboards, and other educational necessities. The program is open to local public and private schools from Pre-K through 12th grade.

Schools can choose to allocate the money toward new textbooks, computers or even events. This program is entering its 28th year and to date it has helped participating schools generate over $6.5 million!

I’m a Gramma to a beautiful, funny, smart little girl who was born in July of 2014. She’s the joy of my family and I’m so very proud to be a gramma (an alternate spelling for grandma)! I am a coffee, music, movie and outdoor lover! My family and I love picnics, festivals and concerts. Spending time with my family is the best part of my life. I love my job as well! Blogging and product reviewing has given my family and I a lot and I have also learned a lot and made a lot of friends.
