Blue State Coffee Selects The Connection as a Nonprofit Partner

Patrons of 320 Congress Avenue, New Haven, Store Can Help Support The Connection

The 320 Congress Avenue, New Haven, Blue State Coffee has selected The Connection as one of its nonprofit partners for the second half of 2015! Donors and friends who frequent the Yale-New Haven Hospital/Yale School of Medicine area are encouraged to stop by and drop a wooden nickel in The Connection’s donation box. 

Blue State Coffee donates 2% of sales to local non-profit organizations suggested by our customers. The innovative and community spirited restaurant chooses four local non-profit organizations at each of their stores twice a year for a six-month period. Each time a customer makes a purchase he or she may vote for one of the selected non-profits we are supporting at that time. At the end of the six-month donation period, Blue State allocates 2% of sales based on the number of votes each organization has received.

Since their first store opened in July of 2007, Blue State has donated over $535,000 to more than 200 non-profit organizations.
