Banfi, producer and importer of fine wines, proudly announces its partnership with national non-profit organization, One Warm Coat. Banfi kicked off the program with a donation that will warm 50,000 people in need.
The partnership with One Warm Coat allows Banfi to spread the word and encourage coat drives at various retail and restaurant accounts across the country, extending the program’s reach and multiplying the number of donations collected. One example can be found not too far from Banfi’s NY headquarters; based in upstate New York, Banfi’s distributor partner, Empire Merchants North has made it a key focus to promote the brand’s initiative on their website and social channels to bolster the partnership and encourage dozens of retailers to support the cause.
“Empire Merchants North proudly joined Banfi’s One Warm Coat program to extend our commitment beyond beverages. Embracing social responsibility, we believe in making a positive impact by contributing to the well-being of our community, aligning seamlessly with Banfi’s philanthropic mission. Our enthusiastic employees joyfully embraced this initiative, embodying our shared commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need,” shares President and CEO of Empire Merchants North Eric Pfeil.
“One of our favorite aspects of working with One Warm Coat is its ability to support the local community. The donations stay in the community where they’re collected, so it’s truly heartening to see the widespread response in the market,” shares Banfi President and CEO Cristina Mariani-May.
