Countless families have lost loved ones to cancer.  On National Coffee Day (Friday, September 29, 2017) the simple routine of purchasing a daily cup of coffee can contribute to assisting those battling this terrible disease.  Caribou Coffee is donating 10% of purchases up to $250,000 on National Coffee Day, as well as throughout the entire month of October, to CancerCare®, a nonprofit organization that provides support, education and financial assistance to those affected by cancer.

Caribou Coffee understands the struggles and heartache of cancer having lost an important member of its corporate team to the disease.  Caribou's original Roastmaster Amy Erickson who originally established the coffee shop's standards and practices that are still used by its employees.  For the last 22 years to honor Amy's memory, Caribou has been selling Amy's Blend Light and Dark Roasts and a variety of other Amy's Collection merchandise to help raise money to help people fight cancer. 10% from the sale of Amy's Collection items are also donated to CancerCare throughout the year.
