Lake City, Florida (May 14, 2024)Ellianos Coffee, a southeast-based drive-thru specialty coffee brand, is proud to partner with the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) to support and honor the brave men and women who have served in the military. Throughout the entire month of May, Ellianos Coffee will join forces with the Wounded Warrior Project to raise awareness and funds for the critical programs and services provided to veterans and their families.

Wounded Warrior Project began in 2003 as a small, grassroots effort, offering simple care and comfort items to the hospital bedsides of the first wounded service members returning home from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Over the years, as the post-service needs of veterans evolved, so did the programs and services offered by the Wounded Warrior Project. Today, WWP provides direct programs in mental health, career counseling, long-term rehabilitative care, and advocacy efforts, all aimed at enhancing the lives of millions of warriors and their families.

In support of this impactful partnership, Ellianos Coffee is excited to announce a special initiative from May 20th to 29th. During this time, customers visiting any Ellianos Coffee location can round up their order total as a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project. Every spare change donation will empower and improve the lives of veterans and their families, providing essential support and resources to those who have made incredible sacrifices for our country.

“Ellianos Coffee is honored to stand alongside the Wounded Warrior Project in support of our nation’s heroes,” said Scott Stewart, Founder of Ellianos Coffee. “This partnership reflects our unwavering commitment to giving back to those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom. We invite our customers to join us in making an impact by rounding up their orders and showing their support for the Wounded Warrior Project.”
