Caffeine has always fueled our Nation’s Military and a coffee drive is underway at Pearly Gates Bar&Grill in Green Bay. 

The idea was brewed up when several Vietnam Veterans went to visit The Wisconsin Veterans Home in King and had several request for coffee. 

The state says while there’s not a shortage of coffee at the facility there are certain items on their wish list.

“What we’ve done to help those people who want to make donations is create what we call  a Wish List. The wish list contains  the things that the Veterans at King have requested or things that  are a little bit beyond what we normally provide to make their life a little bit simple ,” Communication Director of The Wisconsin Veteran Affairs,Carla Vigue said.  

Coffee donations are still be accepted at Pearly Gates Bar&Grill in Green Bay.
