Love INC & Hershey Free Coffee Day
Love In the Name of Christ and Hershey Free Church Partnered to Provide Starbucks to Individuals in the Hershey Medical Center on Good Friday, April 10th, 2020.
When three Hershey Free Church members received LIFT grants last April for their volunteer service with Love INC, the LIFT grants were used to provide a Starbucks Coffee Day at the Hershey Medical Center for our HEROES on the front line. Everyone in the Medical Center was given a $3 voucher. God’s love, in a cup, was served to 1260 customers that day.
Here are a few thank you notes received.
“Thank you so much for your generosity today. So many of our providers, staff, and patients enjoyed your gift of a discounted Starbucks beverage. It absolutely made our day. During these challenging and unprecedented times, it is rejuvenating to be treated to such kindness and thoughtfulness. Please know how much we all appreciated this gesture!”
“I am an RN at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. I cannot begin to thank you all for your extremely generous donation of coffee at Starbucks yesterday. Not only did the caffeine get me through my day, but it was an amazing reminder that God and his people are thinking and praying for us. In a time where everyone is scared and overwhelmed, it is such a blessing to be loved and supported by our community.”
