NEW ORLEANS, US – SCA will be donating 50% of Expo 2021 Attendee Revenue to coffee businesses in New Orleans to support the community in their efforts to rebuild after the impact of Hurricane Ida. As on-the-ground staff have arrived in New Orleans and met with members of the local coffee community to better understand where the assistance is most needed, they can now share that these funds will be made available to local hourly coffee workers as well as coffee businesses.
They are also expanding the program to offer support to businesses and individuals in New Orleans’ surrounding and outlying parishes, many of which have sustained significant impacts of the storm.
“We are currently talking to a number of local organizations to help us distribute these funds, and we look forward to posting another update on these partnerships shortly, along with application criteria and a form to apply” says the SCA in a release.
