“Just like BIGGBY COFFEE is a part of Lansing, so are the Lugnuts,” Lori DeYoung, the spokeswoman for the Lansing-area stores said. “We wanted to give our community a chance to enjoy two local favorites and make it appealing to all ages. We saw such great community support during our last partnership with East Lansing’s Haven House, so we wanted to jump back in and create another connection within our community.”

 

For eight days last month, the Lansing-area BIGGBY COFFEE stores raised approximately $2,000 for Haven House, a family-oriented homeless shelter in East Lansing. The money raised helped support emergency housing and support services for local one and two-parent homeless families with children.

 

“We can’t thank our customers enough for helping to raise money and support Haven House,” DeYoung said. “Now, teaming with the Lugnuts helps us spread that sense of community again, while at the same time giving back to our customers by offering them a chance to win a fun time out at the ballpark.”

About BIGGBY COFFEE®
East Lansing, Mich.-based BIGGBY® COFFEE opened a single store in March of 1995 based on the founding principle that coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike would benefit from a less pretentious approach to the standard gourmet café paradigm. BIGGBY COFFEE introduced connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear and Caramel Marvel, and barista staff surprised guests with simple gestures like free kazoos and bouncy balls for no other reason than to brighten their day. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY COFFEE has 134 cafes open or under contract across seven states including Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, South Carolina, Wisconsin and Texas.  For more information, visit www.biggby.com.
