Elevate Gourmet Brands Announces Partnership with Veterans Community Project for “Veterans Community Perk”

KANSAS CITY, MO – Veterans Community Perk is a new partnership program between Elevate Gourmet Brands’® Green Beans Coffee®, E&K Retail, and Veterans Community Project (VCP), a Kansas City-based nonprofit working to eliminate Veteran homelessness through transitional housing solutions and social services.

Focusing first on the Greater-Kansas City area, VCP aspires to use Kansas City as the blueprint for achieving similar successes in cities across the United States. VCP has a long-term goal of eliminating Veteran homelessness nationwide.

“Elevate Gourmet Brands ACDBE partner Elliott Threatt brought the Veterans Community Project to our attention, and we were all inspired by their commitment to serve those who have served our country,” said George Kennedy, Director of Non-Traditional Development at Elevate Brands. “A good cup of coffee provides a little boost to the incredible work being done by CNN hero Chris Stout and the whole team and Veterans Community Project.”

VCP is made possible through public/private partnerships, individual, and corporate contributions. “We are very excited about our new partnership with Green Beans Coffee and know that residents of the Village will appreciate access to a delicious cup of coffee whenever they please,” said Brandonn Mixon, Co-Founder of VCP.

The Veterans Community Perk program kicks-off on June 27th at VCP Headquarters 8900 Troost Avenue, KCMO 64131. Please join us for a cup of Joe! For more information, please contact Sara Loar at: sloar@veteranscommunityproject.org
