While the goal of Gem City Coffee is to energize people through their coffee, at the heart of it all is the commitment to giving back. A percentage of all sales from our coffee blends goes to local non-profit organizations that are very personal to Jean and Bob.
The first such organization is Young Life Putnam County which is a Christian ministry that reaches out to middle school, high school, and college students in Putnam County Florida with a mission of introducing them to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith.
The second is Celebrate Recovery. CR is a Christ-centered, 12 step program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind. CR is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that control people’s lives.
The third organization is A Women’s Resource Center. AWRC is an interdenominational evangelical ministry that serves women and men in unplanned pregnancies by offering confidential free testing and counseling while sharing the love and hope of salvation through Jesus Christ.
The fourth is Beyond Basic Needs which provides support for Cancer Warriors undergoing chemotherapy by supplying Chemo Care Kits. These kits inspire, uplift, encourage and supply warriors with a port pillow, comfy socks, lip balm and a variety of other goodies. Additionally Warriors get help for basic services such as food delivery, cleaning services, transportation services and other basics needs at no charge to the individual.
