For each pound of coffee sold where the customer had chosen Twin Bridges as the recipient, Olde Glory will give 50 cents to the Twin Bridges Foundation. The company has a wide variety of coffee flavors available online, including decaf, all either ground or whole beans.

Follow the links to Olde Glory’s Coffee store. After choosing your coffee, quantity and ground or whole bean you’ll be asked to choose a recipient of the donation. Chose “TB2021 Rotary” and Twin Bridges will receive the donation.
