For 25 years, the Community Cash for Schools program has provided well over $4 million to local public and private schools and they’re giving you the chance to help them continue to invest in our children’s education. And they also want to give you a chance to win one of three Mercedez-Benz C250 sedans.

“We allow local educators to direct these funds to programs and projects that best serve Louisiana’s youth and we’ve found that they can be quite inventive,” says Community Coffee Public Relations Manager Jodi Conachen. “The program funds have purchased white boards, playground equipment, computers, helped build butterfly gardens, and much more.”

And the reach of the Community Cash for Schools program reaches beyond Louisiana, according to Conachen. “Last year, more than 900 schools, across 9 states turned in more than 3 million UPCs and we’d love to see even more schools participate in the program,” says Conachen. Schools can log on to and enroll online or call 1-800-525-5583. Schools wishing to participate need to sign up each year.

Conachen says Community Coffee is also encouraging their customers to get involved, giving them a chance to instantly win one of three Mercedes-Benz C250 sedans and triple the UPC points for their schools. Conachen says all you have to do is buy a specially-marked 16 oz. package of Community coffee for the chance to win instantly. “The reason for this program, the success of the program, has been the public involvement,” says Conachen. “So, the 25 years is really just a tribute to the community really rallying around Community Coffee and also rallying around our school system. So that’s why for this year, the 25th year anniversary, we added in that extra component of getting people to win a car…so people can have the opportunity to get more involved and stretch those dollars a little further for their school system.”
