Community Coffee Company announced the start of its 31st annual Community Cash for Schools program.

The program helps schools earn money by collecting Proofs of Purchase from most Community brand products.

Last year, more than 75 schools earned over $1,000, and the top earning school, Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School in Lafayette, LA, earned $7,900. Community says that was the most ever earned by a single school. Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School has won the top earning prize two years in a row.

“For over three decades, the Community Cash for Schools® program has helped schools fund necessities to provide a high-quality education to students,” said David Belanger, president and CEO of Community Coffee Company. “We are honored to continue this effort and to help support local students, teachers and communities.”

According to Community Coffee, since the program’s inception in 1988, they have helped public and private schools generate over $7.6 million. Past funding initiatives have included new playground equipment, textbooks, computers, school events and more.

This year, the top-earning school in Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas will receive a celebration at their school hosted by Community Coffee.
