My name is Melissa Green. I am the Founder & CEO of Grounds4Cause
. We take pride in providing delicious coffee, but also in being a coffee company that gives back to the LGBTQ+ and Military Family communities.
As a USN Veteran and Military Spouse, I understand the importance of #community and #connection. I believe that something as simple as sharing a cup of coffee can bring people together and create an opportunity for empathy and understanding.
In January 2021, Southern, Sweet & Sassy®️ Coffee
with a focus on supporting the military family community. The overwhelming response and support we received inspired me to take it a step further and create a brand that supports the LGBTQ+ community as well.
In January 2022, I founded Rise Above Coffee®️
, a company fully dedicated to raising awareness and generating support for LGBTQ+ causes. Both S3 Coffee Co and Rise Above Coffee®️ are built around our #coffeeforacause initiative. Each year, we carefully choose 12 LGBTQ+ and military family-focused nonprofits to spotlight. Each month, we feature one nonprofit from each community and donate a percentage of our monthly sales directly to their cause.
At Grounds4Cause, we strive to be a brand where everyone feels safe, welcomed, and loved for who they are. We offer more than just a great cup of coffee, we provide community and support. We want to create an inclusive and supportive environment for all.
