LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Nov. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- White Coffee Corporation, the Long Island City coffee importer and roaster, is pleased to introduce its structured charitable-giving practices entitled, "White Coffee Cares." The White family and the company have been generous supporters of local and national causes over the decades of White Coffee's operations, which began in 1939. The creation of White Coffee Cares centralizes the philanthropic efforts and will be used to advance the goal of increasing collaborative initiatives with other foundations and like-minded organizations.
White Coffee Cares will continue partnerships currently in place with such groups as City Harvest, The Emeril Lagasse Foundation, the Relief Boutique and local food pantries. White Coffee has provided money and sourced coffee through cooperatives affiliated with Fundacion Amigos del Café (Friends of Coffee Foundation) based in Honduras. White Coffee Cares will assume the relationship with the Friends of Coffee, which advances the core values of Food Security, Good Environmental Practices, Education, Health, Economic Development, and Social Integration.
"Saving the world, one cup at a time," is the maxim White Coffee Cares follows in giving back locally and in supporting charities here and abroad. White Coffee Cares expects to engage new organizations to collaborate with on humanitarian projects and offers the resources of coffee service, volunteers, cross-branding opportunities and other contributions consistent with their vision.
"Since the end of the Great Depression, our family business has helped support local kitchens and other charities through difficult times, and we have remained mindful of the need to serve others," says Jonathan White, Executive Vice President of White Coffee Corporation. "As a business owner, I am gratified that our family will carry forward these values through White Coffee Cares."
