What: Customers at participating Biggby Coffee locations will receive a free “Short” brewed coffee on Friday, Sept. 28, between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. when they return a completed “Dollars for Jobs – Pass It Forward” envelope to the store or make a contribution to Goodwill donation boxes on site. The “Dollars for Jobs” campaign envelopes are designed to be filled with dollar bills and passed from person to person until reaching 25 people.
In addition, Biggby will donate $1 for every “like” they receive on their “Southeast Michigan Biggby Locations” Facebook page during the same time period.

“Support from Biggby and other ‘Dollars for Jobs – Pass It Forward’ sponsors helps Goodwill provide vital training opportunities to put Metro Detroiters back to work. This Friday, by visiting select Biggby locations, all of us can make an impact in the fight against unemployment in our community and enjoy something delicious in return – Biggby coffee,” said Lorna Utley, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit.
