XD Coffee’s Coffee for Healthcare Heroes campaign is raising funds through GoFundMe to provide free XD Coffee cold brew to healthcare professionals battling the COVID-19 crisis in NYC hospitals.
More than 10 NYC hospitals have already signed up to benefit from the campaign. XD Coffee sent out their first orders last week and plans to send out many more this week.
In seven days, the campaign has raised over $3,000, said Nigell Lee, the CEO of Xpresso Delight.
“The response from healthcare workers has been fantastic and honestly I wasn’t too sure whether it would make any difference,” Lee said. “But these people are on the front lines, all the local coffee shops and cafes are closed around them. They tend not to have time to make coffee.”
XD Coffee is also donating 20% of cold brew sales back into the campaign when customers use the code HEALTHCAREHEROES at checkout.
