Brewing Some Local Philanthropy

Southside Community Land Trust is delighted to be featured as one of Blue State Coffee’s Providence causes over the past two years. In their philanthropy program, customers nominate the non-profit organizations Blue State will support and vote on how the donations are allocated in their store.

“Blue State Coffee is proud to have been able to support the important work that SCLT does over the last several years,” says Alex Payson of Blue State Coffee, “Our philanthropic giving is directed by customer suggestions and SCLT continues to be an important organization for our customer base here in Providence.  We believe that socially responsible businesses give back to the community that supports them, and thanks to our customers we have donated over $250,000 since we opened our first store in 2007.”

SCLT gives a big shout-out and thanks to the Thayer Street Blue State and its customers for their socially conscious and creative way of giving back to the local community and for raising us a contribution of $4,500. Awesome!
