The XD Coffee Franchise has launched a fundraising campaign to raise funds for health care professionals battling the COVID-19 crisis in NYC hospitals.
Information for donating can be found on their GoFundMe page.
More than 10 NYC hospitals have already signed up to benefit from the campaign, including NYC Health+ Hospitals Bellevue, The Brooklyn Hospital Center, Coney Island Hospital, NYC Health+ Hospitals Elmhurst, Long Island Jewish Medical Center Northwell Health, Montefiore, Miamonides Medical Center, Mount Sinai Morningside, NewYork-Presbyterian, North Shore University Hospital, NYU Langone Health, ST. John's Episcopal Hospital, and Stony Brook University Hospital.
XD Coffee sent out their first orders last week and plans to send out many more this week. In seven days, the campaign has raised over $3,000, said Nigell Lee, the CEO of Xpresso Delight.
“The response from healthcare workers has been fantastic and honestly I wasn’t too sure whether it would make any difference,” Lee said. “But these people are on the front lines, all the local coffee shops and cafes are closed around them. They tend not to have time to make coffee.”
XD Coffee is also donating 20% of cold brew sales back into the campaign when customers use the code HEALTHCAREHEROES on thier website during checkout.
