Bean's Cafe Launches the First Groupon Grassroots Campaign in Alaska
ANCHORAGE - Today, Bean's Cafe launches a local campaign in partnership with Groupon Grassroots, the philanthropic arm of Groupon, to support its food and shelter initiative. If 38 people donate $10, then Bean’s Café can purchase 150 bowls and spoons to stock its community kitchen. This is the first time a local Alaskan organization has partnered with Groupon Grassroots.
Bean's Cafe has been feeding the hungry and providing shelter for the homeless in Anchorage since 1979. The organization has recently seen an increase in demand and on its busiest days, the cafe serves over 800 meals. Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union has generously agreed to match donations up to $500 to the Bean's Cafe Groupon Grassroots campaign.
The campaign will go live on Monday, August 20th at midnight and will run for a full week, ending Sunday, August 26th at midnight. It will be featured on Anchorage Groupon page here: [LINK]. Bean's Cafe would like to thank the Grassroots staff for this opportunity as well as Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union for their generous support.
