On Friday, the Human Bean coffee stand locations will host the 16th annual Coffee for a Cure event, a yearly event that raises funds for local breast cancer foundations.
All proceeds from food and beverage sales on October 22 at all Human Bean locations will be donated to breast cancer foundations, assisting in the funding of preventative scans for early detection, education, and patient support during treatment.
“Coffee for a Cure has grown into a tremendously successful and effective event, and we are honoured to contribute to the fight against breast cancer,” the Human Bean said in a statement. “Since founding Coffee for a Cure, we have lost a barista, a franchise owner, family, and friends to breast cancer, so we understand firsthand the devastation this disease causes and the critical nature of community support.”
Human Bean franchisees and customers have collectively raised more than $2.2 million for breast cancer research.
Human Bean claims to work directly with local foundations at each drive-through location. Patient support funds are allocated to patients who are most in need of financial assistance.
“With a bean on top, The Human Bean is on a mission to inspire authentic human connections and to give back to the communities in which we operate,” the company continued. “Please visit any of The Human Bean locations on this day and all food and beverage sales will benefit a local breast cancer care centre in that community. Additionally, we will be selling limited edition Coffee for a Cure merch that day to help raise additional funds.”
