Local restaurants sending coffee to military members throughout November

Posted: Updated:

CENTRAL ILLINOIS - Local McDonald's owner-operators say they are hosting the second annual “Buy One, Give One. McCafé® Coffee for Our Military” initiative this November.

From November 2 until November 15, local restaurants will send a cup of coffee, in the form of fresh coffee grounds, to active and veteran military members for each cup purchased.  During last year's initiative, more than 400,000 cups of coffee were donated to military members.  

In addition to the cups of coffee, students from Peoria and Bloomington-area schools will write letters for delivery to military members.

Local restaurants are partnering with Operation Gratitude to deliver the donations.  For more information, visit www.operationgratitude.com.
