ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI) – Toms Shoes, the non-profit shoe company, is now getting into the coffee business. Just like their shoes, they'll donate a portion of the proceeds from every purchase of their coffee to provide clean drinking water to parts of the world that don't have it.

The sale of just four bags of coffee can help provide clean drinking water for one person for life in Uganda.

Toms has partnered up with Joe Koenig from Three Avocados in St. Louis to sell the coffee.

You can buy the coffee locally, in St. Charles at the Bridge Coffeehouse, 3224-1 Rue Royale, St. Charles, MO 63301.
