MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) - May 1 kicks off National Military Appreciation month. With 400,000 U.S. military personnel serving in 150 countries, one local business is making it easy to show your support for our troops overseas and make them feel more at home.

One of those groups making it easy to show your support is Community Coffee, which is offering to match your military donation during the month of May. If you buy four boxes or bags of coffee to U.S. troops, the company will match your donation.

"When we talk to our military personnel, they want a cup of coffee and a cup of home," said Jodi Conachem, Community Coffee. "It has that connection of being at home and being supported."

The coffee shop has been matching military donations for five years, sending more than 20,000 pounds of coffee to troops overseas.

"There's members from all over the country, including Memphis and Tennessee who are overseas," added Conachem. "Obviously, this is a great time during military match month in May to be able to support them and give them something back."
