Giving is Getting Week
BIGGBY COFFEE'S first annual #GivingIsGettingWeek has officially come to a close, and because of each and every one of you we were able to raise $55,800. In return that money will create more than 150,000 meals!
We started talking about a way to involve all of our locations in a charity-type event, and we soon realized that food banks are in every community and that community has a need to utilize that resource. Each of the 224 BIGGBY® COFFEE locations will be paired with an organization that serves the community they are in, so every dollar is going right back into local neighborhoods. - Bob Fish, BIGGBY CEO
This year we were able to join forces with multiple food banks in our local communities to help fight food insecurities. With the help of each and every one of you we were able to raise a grand total of $55,800! This amount will then provide more than 150,000 meals to people in our local communities!
