TAMPA BAY, FL- On Wednesday, September 28th, Hurricane made landfall in Southwest Florida and was a devastating natural disaster. Residents of Ft. Myers and the surrounding areas experienced severe storm surge and high winds and many people lost their homes and some even their lives. Hurricane Ian was projected to make a direct landfall to Tampa Bay, and although we were spared major damage, Kahwa Coffee wants to help our neighbors to the south who were affected by this storm.
Kahwa Co-Owner and Founder, Raphael Perrier was on the ground in Ft Myers this past weekend, bringing supplies to the area and Kahwa was happy to be able to donate coffee to those preparing meals for World Central Kitchen (WCK). WCK is has set up free meal sites all throughout Southwest Florida to feed hot meals and sandwiches to the victims of Hurricane Ian. After seeing the work WCK has done this past week in the area, Kahwa decided to help in a bigger way. Kahwa Coffee will be donating 100% of Coffee and Tea sales from Thursday, October 6th directly to World Central Kitchen to support the free meal sites for hurricane victims. With the help of our customers and other community partners, we were able to raise $15,380! Kahwa is so appreciative of the Tampa Bay community showing up to help our SWFL neighbors!
