KISS Coffee Sent To Troops
September 20, 2006, 13 years ago
Yesterday (September 19th) 2,000 bags of KISS Army Blend Coffee were sent to the Rhode Island National Guard serving in Iraq, compliments of the KISS Coffeehouse and Mills Coffee Company!
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, visited Mills Coffee Company in Providence, RI, to thank the KISS Coffeehouse team for donating the KISS Coffee to the RI National Guard members serving in Iraq. "I am pleased to support any effort made by our business community to bring a little bit of home to our troops who are serving so bravely in the war against terror," said Congressman Langevin.
Mills, the official roaster of KISS Coffeehouse products, generously matched the 1,000 bag donation by KISS Coffeehouse. “Along with creating the most exciting coffeehouse in the marketplace, we all wanted to recognize the men and woman serving overseas. Hopefully, our rocking coffee will give them a lift”, added KISS Coffeehouse owner Brian Galvin.
Local Providence/New Bedford NBC TV affiliate WJAR covered the event.
