Cups for a Cause

Cups for a Cause

We get a lot of messages from people asking if they can volunteer for NVC. We love your enthusiasm and your spirit of service! Unfortunately, Covid restrictions have forced us to limit our volunteer opportunities for the time being. However, there is still a way you can help us out from the safety of your own homes!

Many of you probably start your day with a cup of joe. Your daily coffee habit can play a big role in helping the people we serve. Many of the crafts made by the NVC Artisans of Hope are made from upcycled aluminum coffee capsules. Proceeds from the sales of these crafts fund our different livelihood, nutrition and education programs so we need as many of these coffee capsules as we can get! So drink up and keep them coming our way!

Aluminum or Plastic?

We accept all brands of metal coffee capsules. At the moment we do not accept any plastic coffee capsules.

To Clean or Not to Clean?

You don’t have to clean the coffee capsules before you donate them. However, if you did, we’d be extra grateful! Click on the links to see how some of our volunteers have been cleaning the coffee capsules before donating them.
