“We continue to see an overwhelming response and generosity from our customers
during our Coffee for the Troops campaigns,” said Terrance G. Finley, Chief
Executive Officer and President of Books-A-Million, Inc. “We hope that our
service men and women know that we appreciate their service, especially during
this time of year when they are away from their friends and family serving our
country.”

BAM! customers who bought and donated coffee wrote personal messages and
holiday greetings to soldiers on the bags. An additional donation of 8,400
bags of coffee was made by the company, bringing the total donation to over
50,595 bags of Joe Muggs coffee. This is the fourth Coffee for the Troops
coffee drive BAM! has organized, and donations have totaled nearly 100,000
bags of coffee donated since the program’s inception in 2012. The response
from customers across the country this holiday season has surpassed all of the
company’s goals and expectations.

“The generosity of both BAM! and the supporting public in response to BAM!'s
efforts is tremendous,” said Sam Hicks, Vice President of CauseKeepers. “This
coffee and the effort put behind the donation is truly an encouragement to our
men and women serving in our armed forces at a time where many feel forgotten.
A cup of Joe Muggs coffee will warm a lot of troop's hearts this Holiday
Season!”

Soldiers’ Angels was started by the mother of two soldiers, Patti
Patton-Bader, who learned that some soldiers in her sons’ deployed units did
not receive any mail or support from home.Ms. Bader quickly contacted friends
and extended family and within a few months, Soldiers’ Angels went from a
mother sending a few packages and letters to an online community with
thousands of Angels worldwide. Soldiers’ Angels currently supports tens of
thousands of American military personnel around the world and here at home.
During the holidays, Soldiers’ Angels sends out more than 30,000 care packages
to troops across the world.
