Disabled Veterans National Foundation and G.I. Joe Coffee Team Up to Help Aspiring Veteran Entrepreneurs Some proceeds from select G.I. Joe Coffee products will be used in efforts to help Veterans in entrepreneur programs
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (www.dvnf.org), a nonprofit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, is pleased to announce G.I. Joe Coffee as a new sponsor. G.I. Joe Coffee, an Arizona-based company that is Veteran-owned and Veteran-operated, is a new startup that aims to use its profits to benefit those who have served in the military.
A portion of proceeds from G.I. Joe's specially branded DVNF coffee will be donated back to DVNF. Starting out, both DVNF and G.I. Joe Coffee will join forces to donate funds to a Veteran entrepreneurship program. Recognizing the unique traits and drive that is possessed by so many Veterans, the goal is to give these Veterans tools to succeed and help boost our economy.
As the partnership progresses, both DVNF and G.I. Joe have expressed interest in helping Veterans with many other initiatives as well. Home modifications and Veterans' transitional housing are causes that both companies evaluated and hope to contribute to in the future.
"We are thrilled to be joining forces with G.I. Joe Coffee," said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (SgtMaj Ret). "Seeing the Veteran ingenuity they have in their own company, we felt it appropriate to empower more Veteran entrepreneurs in the way that G.I. Joe Coffee did. We are extremely grateful that they have chosen to incorporate social good as a main point of emphasis in their business model."
Speaking on this partnership, G.I. Joe Coffee President, Tony Hudson, said, "We are excited to make this relationship a strong and effective one to aid in helping disabled American Vets, one cup at a time!"
