GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Amy's blend, a signature coffee of Caribou, celebrates it's 17th anniversary this year and a new partner in the fight against breast cancer.
CEO Mike Tattersfield joined KARE 11 News @ 4 to remember its original roastmaster, Amy Erickson, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1995 and to announce their new partner, Cancercare.
CancerCare offers free services for people affected by breast cancer and Caribou Coffee will donate 10% of the proceeds from sales of its Amy's Blend collection, now through November 7 to CancerCare.
Caribou will also donate an additional $1 to CancerCare for each additional "Like" they receive on their Facebook page!
"Giving back to the community is at the core of our company, and we were moved by CancerCare's approach to providing support services, including financial assistance, on a very local and individual level," said Mike Tattersfield, president and CEO of Caribou Coffee.
"We are very excited to work with an organization that will help those impacted by breast cancer in Caribou's communities to provide support for co-payments, home care, transportation to and from treatment, and other miscellaneous costs and needs, all while paying tribute to our dear friend, Amy Erickson."
