We sent 22nd Street Coffee recently over to TGH labs today to help our workers on the frontlines. We will all get through this together with a cup of coffee by our side.
We sent this donation through Rising Tide Tampa Bay. Rising Tide is organized by the Melendi Family.

What a wonderful way to start the day! ☀️ This morning, Datz and Dough delivered 75 breakfasts (egg scrambles and breakfast burritos to be exact) to the lab workers at Tampa General Hospital. And to make this delivery even sweeter, Brisk Coffee Roasters donated dozens of individual coffee packets so the lab workers can brew a pot whenever they need a pick-me-up! We are truly honored to be serving the frontlines and thrilled to be supporting local businesses at the same time. 🙌🏼 If you have any restaurants or frontline workers near and dear to you, please DM us and let us know. We would love to try and support them! #yoursupportmatters #thatssotampa #tampaproud #thankshealthheroes #togetherfortampa #tampageneralhospital #supportlocal #supportlocalrestaurants
They have raised over $24,000 and use 100% of the funds donated by community members to directly purchase meals from locally-owned restaurants that are delivered to the heroes and victims in our community, including hospital workers, police and fire fighters, and the homeless.
Not only does his help keep businesses afloat, but it also supports Tampa residents who need it the most.
Rising Tide Tampa Bay has already served more than 500 frontline workers from 8+ local restaurants.
22 year-old Crosby Melendi told WFLA News about their efforts, "We were just trying to figure out a way to help the community in another way than just sitting on the couch".
