Con-way Truckload joins charity to send free coffee to troops overseas

| 3/11/2015

Con-way Truckload and military charity Holy Joe’s Cafe have teamed up to provide coffee to soldiers at military bases in the United States. Con-way Truckload is now a transportation sponsor of the charity.

Offering its services free of charge, Con-way will transport thousands of pounds of coffee to military bases. Coffee is also donated from suppliers.

Con-way began moving coffee for military charity Holy Joe’s Cafe last June. Transporting more than a dozen shipments, the donated service was valued at more than $50,000. This year, Con-way plans to increase the amount of shipments. Each truckload carries approximately 400,000 to 500,000 Keurig K-Cups along with a pallet of Keurig coffeemakers.

Once shipments arrive at various military bases, the coffee is sent to deployed troops. Soldiers in the Middle East are the main focus, with military personnel in 35 other countries also being delivered Keurig coffee.

Served by military chaplains at overseas bases, troops will have the opportunity to have conversations dealing with a variety of issues they may have to cope with while deployed. More than 150 military chaplains participate in this program.
