MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE, Mont. -- Malmstrom’s base chapel received a delivery from a non-profit organization Jan. 16, consisting of more than 400,000 single-serve cups to restock supplies for missile alert facilities and other base organizations who use the cups.
The single-serve beverage can be brewed in a single-cup machine.
Flavors include hazelnut, French vanilla and café mocha for coffee flavors, hot cocoa and tea.
“All of the organizations and MAFs that currently have the coffee, this will be used to restock what they already have,” said Capt. Deborah Hughley, 341st Missile Wing chaplain. “Sometimes we (chaplains) take out the coffee, or folks from different organizations come get the coffee themselves.”
“It’s a lot to distribute, so we get help from people to distribute the coffee to different MAFs and organizations besides the chapel office that are already receiving the coffee,” she continued.
The mission of Holy Joe’s, the non-profit organization who donated the cups, consists of serving troops, including giving coffee to deployed zone service members. Airmen who deploy out to MAFs are considered being deployed in place, which allowed the organization to donate to Malmstrom.
A previous donation of single-serve cups was received in 2015, with future donations cycling every two to three years.
“(This donation) helps improve the morale of our troops and the fact that they feel that somebody is thinking about them and is going the extra mile. It’s a little cup of love,” said Hughley. “We’re thinking of you. We thank you for what you do.”
