It’s not every day that your cup of coffee can support justice for all, but it can during the month of July!
Appleseed is excited to renew our community partnership throughout the month of July with our friends at Urban Abbey, a nonprofit coffee shop, bookstore, and faith community in Omaha.
Stop in and grab a cup of coffee or bag of coffee beans and your purchase will support Appleseed’s fight for justice and opportunity for all!
Here’s how it works: Each month, Urban Abbey selects a nonprofit partner who receives 10% of all coffee bar sales and 100% of sales of the “Urban Abbey Blend” of whole bean coffee. Beansmith donates these bags of whole beans each month.
Last year, Appleseed earned more than $1,300 thanks to this great partnership.
Join us for some exciting Appleseed events at Urban Abbey in July:
