AnswerFirst Charity Committee has announced one of its Q4 donations.

The AnswerFirst Charity Committee is made up of AF employees who want to contribute their time and effort to furthering AnswerFirst’s initiative to support unique and exceptional charities. This committee meets at least once per quarter to focus on how AnswerFirst can contribute to nonprofits that are important to AnswerFirst employees and our communities.

As one of its Q4 donations, the committee decided to make a $2500 contribution to CUP – Coffee Uniting People.

According to CUP’s website its mission is:

CUP will provide secure and successful jobs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in an inclusive workplace. We will open our first non-profit coffee house in South Tampa in the fall of 2022. CUP is about inclusion, acceptance, and opportunity for people of all abilities. Our coffee is bold. So is our mission.

More information from CUP’s website:

Our involvement with Challenger Baseball (baseball that includes children with disabilities) opened our eyes to the significant need for inclusion at all ages and into adulthood. Eighty percent of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are unemployed. We are determined to change this one CUP at a time.
