SkyPort IT’s Coffee for Coats Initiative Combines Client Gift-Giving with Support for Two Charitable Causes:  Puerto Rican Refugees and Women in Recovery

SkyPort IT, a leading provider of fortified data security management services is taking a new approach to gift-giving this year by offering $10 Coffee Connection gift certificates to its clients for every winter coat that is donated to the Ibero’s drive for refugees who are relocating to Rochester from hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.  

Dan Marcellus, president and chief executive officer, SkyPort IT, said,  “We were very concerned when we heard about the refugees who have come here with so little and we wanted to support the effort to help them acclimate to Rochester.”

SkyPort IT came up with the idea to organize a winter coat drive after hearing about Ibero’s call for winter clothing. “We were thrilled to hear that SkyPort IT wanted to help support this initiative,” said Patricia Cruz-Irving, director of Development and Communications, Ibero. 

Rather than give gift cards from a chain coffee shop, SkyPort IT decided to provide client’s with gift certificates to the Coffee Connection, which imports Fair trade coffee from Peru and provides employment to women who are recovering from addiction and other traumatic events.

“We couldn’t be more pleased that SkyPort IT has chosen to support our organization this holiday season by making a generous purchase of gift certificates for their clients,”  said Joy Bergfalk, executive director, the Coffee Connection and Project Empower. “The financial support and exposure for our organization will help highlight and help the excellent work these women are doing to be self-sufficient and productive in the Rochester community.”
