here state-side.”

program. For $23, 1 bag is donated to the troops in Iraq and 2 bags are sent to the
purchaser.Brown & Jenkins adds to the contribution and pays for the shipping.

which is really nice to see.” Brown and Jenkins also encourage people to let them
know of other units who would enjoy a great cup of coffee. “Regardless of your
stance on the war, everyone wants to give a taste of home to those who are serving
our country so very far away from friends, family and loved ones. We saw a need for
this and we’ve been glad to help.”
