WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Annually In October, Caribou Coffee honors Amy Erickson, one of Caribou's original roastmasters that passed away at a young age from breast cancer, by going pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Caribou offers its special Amy’s Blends along with other pink merchandise and gift cards, with a percentage of all proceeds going to various breast cancer causes.

Caribou Coffee will be brewing Amy's blend all month, have their Amy's tea back, and are featuring new bakery and drinkware items.

Woodstock store manager Jacqui Sands said, “We also honor everyone's Amy, as so many of us have been touched by those who have fought the battle against, or lost their lives to, breast cancer and other cancers.”

This year, 10% of sales from  Amy's products and Amy's blend beans will go towards CancerCare chapters in the Atlanta area. We are also asking guests if they are interested in donating coffee to be brewed during the Brian McCann Celebrity softball game for the Rally Foundation. Lastly, Caribou’s Woodstock store is seeking local cancer-related causes, organizations, businesses and other places to donate coffee to during October; if anyone is interested in partnering with Caribou on 92, please contact Woodstock store manager Jacqui by going by the coffee shop or calling. For those on Facebook, if you "Like" Caribou Coffee's page this month, Caribou will donate $1 to CancerCare!

You never know what your local Caribou on 92 is up to.  One thing is obvious, their team is excited about sharing the story of Amy and why they're passionate about this cause.
