Every Monday in July, all 21 of the Costa Family McDonald’s gave 50% percent of their coffee proceeds, hot and iced, all day, to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast.

“Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast is honored to be chosen as a recipient organization of the 2016 McCafé with a Cause program.  We received $1,500 which will be used to expand and enhance our outcome-based programming in Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Good Character and Citizenship.  Costa Enterprises is a generous community leader and we look forward to partnering with Costa in the future,” said Shervin Rassa, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast.

McCafé with a Cause is an ongoing program that was started by Costa Enterprises in 2014 in the effort to reach out to several community organizations while bringing more awareness to their 100% Arabica bean McCafe’ coffee.

 “Giving back to the communities that we serve has always been a top priority for us,” said David Costa of Costa Enterprises McDonald’s. “McCafé with a Cause has been hugely successful in raising money for charities in our community, so much so that other owner/operators have followed suit and the program will be featured at the upcoming McDonald’s World Wide Convention in Orlando.”
