NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 1, 2008) - Don't be surprised if you see Angels helping to give away coffee this holiday season. They plan to join 7-Eleven, the world's premier convenience retailer, and their employees to help make the holidays festive for our local Long Island communities. In keeping with the spirit of giving, 7-Eleven will be providing 375 free cases of Heavenly Blend Coffee to Churches, Temples and Houses of Worship as a gift to the local communities. Pick-up will take place on Monday, December 1, 2008 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the 7-Eleven store located at 2397 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow. The first 100 representatives will also receive a free case of Heavenly Blend coffee cups.

"We thought this would be a wonderful way to give a gift to the local communities on Long Island," explained Bonnie Grube, Northeast Coffee Merchandiser for 7-Eleven. "With today's economic situation, this is one small way we can support the efforts of those who work within our communities," she continued. In addition, there will be an appearance by celebrity angel, Mrs. New York America 2006/2007 Lidia Szcepanowski-Goldsmith who will be making an appearance to help with the festivities and the efforts. "This is a wonderful opportunity which makes a remarkable difference in the lives of others," she explains.
