Local

This year, more than 800 schools participated in the Community Cash for Schools® program, earning over $328,500 from Proof of Purchase collection.

 “We are thrilled to see so many communities coming together and utilizing this program to better the education of our youth,” said Jodi Conachen, Community Coffee General Manager of Communications. “More than 75 schools earned over $1,000 this year, which will help provide students and teachers with the resources they need for a successful school year.”

Since its inception 29 years ago, Community Cash for Schools® has helped public and private schools throughout the region earn $7.4M dollars by collecting Proofs of Purchase from all Community® brand products. These funds are used for programs and initiatives that best serve students’ needs, like new playground equipment, textbooks, computers, whiteboards, school events and more.

This year’s top-earning school, Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School in Lafayette, LA, earned $6,800 for its students.
