San Antonio-based Merit Coffee Co. gave more than $13,000 to area kids through the power of Fiesta and “Baby Yoda.”
The coffee chain with locations throughout Texas, including five in San Antonio, presented a $13,483 check to Snack Pak 4 Kids on May 14. The non-profit organization works to provide weekend food supplements for local children who are chronically hungry. Merit Coffee’s donation will go toward filling 4,000 Snack Paks, which is enough to take care of 90 San Antonio kids for an entire school year. A “Baby Yoda” Fiesta medal helped the coffee company fulfill their promise, even in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, which has hit the service industry hard.
