The founder of a Milford nonprofit dedicated to helping veterans has turned his attention to local firefighters.
Mike Shain, founder of Thanks To Yanks, recently collaborated with Upton-based Red Barn Coffee Roasters to create a Milford Fire Department brand of coffee. Shain then donated bags of the “Milford Firehouse Roast” to local stations.
Shain has an existing relationship with Red Barn. The roaster’s co-founder, Mark Verrochi, is a retired Navy special operations officer. Shain has sent Red Barn coffee to veterans serving abroad as part of the Thanks To Yanks mission.
