TYSONS, Va., Feb. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Alpha Coffee, a veteran and military-spouse co-owned company dedicated to offering amazing coffee, promoting the warrior lifestyle, and giving back to the military, today announced the company will donate 10% of national sales Feb. 7-15 to the PenFed Foundation. The donations will be used by the PenFed Foundation to provide members of the military community with emergency financial assistance, help veterans achieve the dream of home ownership and support investments in veteran entrepreneurs.

"We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Alpha Coffee and their support for the military community," said PenFed President and retired U.S. Army Gen. John "Mick" Nicholson, Jr. "The money raised during this President's Day promotion will directly support our vision of service members being able to serve our nation free of financial worry and veterans living with a strong financial future."
On Sept. 11, 2010, Alpha Coffee was co-founded by retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Carl Churchill, a combat veteran with 21 years of service as both an enlisted soldier and officer, and his wife Lori Churchill, a military spouse and coffee lover. As a cause-based coffee company, all service members, veterans and first responders receive 10% off Alpha coffee purchases. And, through their Coffee for Troops initiative, where every bag purchased helps send the equivalent of a cup of coffee to deployed troops, Alpha Coffee has sent more than 19,000 bags of coffee to deployed troops around the world.
"I was honored to serve, but that service to country doesn't end when you leave the military," said Alpha Chief Coffee Officer Carl Churchill. "At Alpha it is a core part of our mission to give back to non-profits that serve our community and we're thrilled to support the PenFed Foundation."
The PenFed Foundation, a national 501(c)3 founded by PenFed Credit Union, was created in 2001 and, since then, has provided more than $38.5 million in financial support to veterans, active-duty service members, families and caregivers.
