DETROIT — Strategic Staffing Solutions will increase their ongoing support for the Michigan Humane Society through a new partnership with Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co.
Recently chosen as the exclusive coffee supplier to S3’s corporate and Detroit offices, Grounds & Hounds will direct 20 percent of S3’s monthly fees to the Michigan Humane Society, the animal welfare organization to be the beneficiary of all donated funds.
“One of the core pillars of S3’s community engagement is supporting animal welfare, and, with our Detroit office consuming over 45 pounds of coffee every month, our partnership with Ground & Hounds will certainly benefit the animals served by MHS,” says S3 CEO and President Cynthia J. Pasky. “Partnering with Grounds & Hounds is one more example of how corporations can leverage their day to day investments to benefit the communities in which they operate.”
Grounds & Hounds was founded in 2014 by Jordan Karcher, who built his company on his love for premium coffee and his compassion for abandoned animals in need of loving homes. One-fifth of all sales from G&H coffee are donated to selected animal rescue partners across the country, and thanks to their partnership with S3, the Michigan Humane Society will become the first organization in Michigan to benefit from G&H’s sponsorship program.
Since 1990, S3 has donated more than $9 million to charities, and in 2014, the company donated nearly $2 million to community enrichment projects. Other beneficiaries of S3’s long-term support for animal welfare include the Detroit Police Department’s Mounted Division, the ASPCA and the Detroit Zoological Society.
