Hanx For Our Troops coffee brand supports veterans

Hanx For Our Troops — a fun play on Tom Hanks's catchy surname — is a freshly brewed coffee brand that is set to provide more than tasty cups of joe. The recently launched company, founded by Hanks, sells a variety of ethically sourced coffee products that will directly support veterans and their families. People explains that proceeds from all of the company's sales will be granted to veteran-centric institutions including Hire Heroes USA, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, Student Veterans of America, and The Headstrong Project.

The coffee brand's official website states, "At Hanx, we're on a mission to create goods that do good. We honor the patriotism and service of our veterans and their families by giving 100% of our profits to organizations who provide them with critical support and resources." The ground coffee flavor is First Class Joe, which comes in both medium and dark roasts. Pods and instant coffee sticks are also available in Sgt. Peppermint and Tom's Morning Magic Blend. Tom Hanks has proven once again that he truly is one of America's nicest guys.
