Shriners Hospitals for Children and Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company launch new Rise and Shrine blend that benefits the health care system

Shriners Hospitals for Children is excited to announce that it has teamed up with Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company® to release Rise and Shrine, a new specialty blend of coffee that helps support the health care system. With every one-pound bag purchased of this medium roast, smooth and hearty blend of freshly roasted Arabica beans, $1 will be donated to Shriners Hospitals for Children.

The Rise and Shrine blend will be introduced on Tuesday, Feb. 12, both online and with a launch party at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Tampa. The special tasting event will begin at 8 a.m., and Joffrey’s will bring a coffee truck to the hospital to not only officially kick off the new blend, but also to say thank you to the physicians, nurses and staff of the hospital for the hope and healing they provide to children every day.

“At Joffrey’s, we have made a commitment to help causes supporting families and children who are in need in our community,” said Ted Abrams, CEO of Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company. “This is why we decided to join Shriners Hospitals for Children in their charitable mission. Shriners Hospitals, headquartered in the Tampa Bay area, provides quality care for children with orthopaedic conditions and other severe conditions, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. We realize how important it is to help maintain this access to care and preserve the legacy the Shriners built over the past 90 years. We are proud to introduce the Rise and Shrine blend in collaboration with Shriners Hospitals for Children to further their fundraising efforts.”
