It’s No Trick – Teachers, Treat Yourselves!

As a small business centered around giving back, Zombie Coffee and Donuts will host a “Teacher Appreciation Day” on Tuesday, October 5, to honor Athens’ local community of educators. Those presenting a valid teacher ID will each receive a complimentary donut with purchase of a coffee drink. This sweet gesture will thank those who are rising to the unique challenge of inspiring and teaching their students in new ways during this unprecedented time. 

“While many things have changed going into this semester, University of Georgia’s school spirit is as strong as ever,” said Tony Raffa, founder of Zombie Coffee & Donuts. “We are excited to embrace the season with some fun, creative new offerings and most importantly, we remain committed to giving back through our Zombie Gives Back program and rewarding Athens’ teaching community.” 

Raffa founded Zombie Coffee and Donuts in 2016 as a University of Georgia business student with the mission to serve delicious made-to-order donuts and hand-crafted coffee while creating an impact in the community. Created as a social enterprise to be a catalyst for positive change, Zombie’s unique business model offers opportunities for local non-profits to fundraise and Raffa consistently seeks new ways to give back to each store’s local community.  

This month’s featured charities include Project Safe Inc., Free I.T. Athens and Active Minds UGA
