Jason Kelloway founded Social Grounds Coffee in 2015 as an online store. What began with a love for people and great coffee has turned into a noble mission to hire homeless veterans.
This April, he plans to open a storefront in Springfield.
“We have a good partnership with the Sulzbacher Center and wanted to create more opportunities for employment for the homeless,” says Kelloway, a Marine Corps vet himself. “I just felt that it was time.”
Each coffee purchase provides a donation to organizations like Cup of Love Ministry and Rethreaded.
