As community members banned together October 7–20 to round up their change at BIGGBY® COFFEE registers across the nation, BIGGBY® COFFEE and STOMP Out Bullying are proud to thank each and every community member that took the time to donate and create a voice for those that may be fearful of using their own voice.
