Thanks for a great Free Coffee Friday!

DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich (WLNS) – Thank you to the hundreds of people who came out to another “Free Coffee Friday” this morning.

This time several of us TV-6er’s were stationed inside the Biggby Coffee store on West St. Joseph Highway in Delta Township west of Lansing.

More than 470 people either came through the door or went through the drive-through.

For those who visited between 6:00 and 9:00 a.m. WLNS paid for their 20-ounce cup of brewed coffee.

The owners of this Biggby are veterans and every November 11th they give back as well.

“Mark and I were both very proud of our service and service doesn’t end when we took off our uniforms,” said veteran and store owner Paula Thompson. “So even though we don’t wear our uniform anymore we can give back by bringing awareness to veterans organizations and Veterans Day and making an impact we can make by donating money.”

This year, Paula says, the store is donating half of their proceeds to a local non-profit called “Stiggy’s Dogs” which trains shelter dogs to be service dogs for veterans for free.
