During the month of May 2020, Belift Coffee teamed up with Salesforce to donate coffee from local coffee shops and Belift Coffee beans to the essential agencies that were still operating as usual in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

A bit about us.
For those who aren’t familiar, Belift Coffee was founded in 2019 with a social impact mission to uplift young individuals through soft-skills training and employment at Belift to run coffee serving operations.
When this black swan event of a pandemic happened and Bay Area was told to shelter-in-place in March — we had to stop all of our coffee serving events as the rest of the world would be as well.
Our reaction to shelter-in-place...
The world on hold meant that a large number of small businesses would not weather through these times of closure.
We launched YoCuppa.com the very next week. A freshly-made coffee delivery service allowing Bay Area locals to keep supporting their favorite coffee shops during quarantine, which made it difficult for people to travel (at least not without level 9000 anxiety dodging other humans like PacMan).
Coffee donations to local communities.
Biggest shoutout and thank you to Jason Daniel from Salesforce! You rock. It was such an awesome experience meeting some of the frontline workers and making coffee as a vehicle to deliver kindness, which is one of our biggest values.
We wish you are all doing well and staying strong.
