OMAHA, Neb., – Scooter’s Coffee® joins Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS) in supporting our military members and their families for their courage, commitment and sacrifice. Through Aug. 12 at participating locations, Scooter’s Coffee customers can add $1 to their order, with all proceeds benefitting WWFS. With Purple Heart Day on Aug. 7, now is a great time to support and give back to those who bravely served our country.
This is the fifth consecutive year Scooter’s Coffee has supported WWFS to help combat-wounded veterans and families of veterans wounded, injured or killed in action. Last year, Scooter’s Coffee helped raise over $44,000 to WWFS thanks to the generosity of its customers, employees and franchisees at participating locations.
“Scooter’s Coffee is proud to support the important work of Wounded Warriors Family Support. The organization helps wounded veterans and their families heal, recover and connect with needed services and resources,” said Bill Black, Chief Marketing Officer at Scooter’s Coffee. “Veterans and their families demonstrate courage, which is an important Core Value at Scooter’s Coffee. We are grateful to Wounded Warriors Family Support as it recognizes the courage of veterans and their families through healing the wounds that medicine cannot.”
In addition to offering a welding training program that allows veterans to train and test for a 6G through 4F welding certification, WWFS provides grants and modified vehicles for combat-wounded veterans through Mobility is Freedom. The program aims to enhance the quality of life for wounded veterans by providing freedom and independence in their everyday lives. Since 2021, WWFS has provided 18 vehicle grants and 22 modified vehicles to wounded veterans.
“We greatly appreciate our partnership with Scooter’s Coffee in supporting our military families,” WWFS President Kate McCauley said. “Our mission to serve combat-wounded veterans and their families depends on the generosity of companies, such as Scooter’s Coffee. Our deepest thanks to their customers, franchise owners and employees for their continued support.”
In addition to its partnership with WWFS, Scooter’s Coffee is a member of the International Franchise Association (“IFA”) and supports the IFA’s VetFran Program. Honorably discharged veterans who meet Scooter’s Coffee’s qualifications to be a franchisee, can receive a $20,000 product credit from the Scooter’s Coffee division Harvest Roasting for use in the first year of operation of the veteran’s first store. More information on the IFA program can be found at VetFran.com.
