Pay It Forward

“Pay it Forward” jars at the register of each Egg Harbor Cafe offer you a simple way to contribute to a good cause. Each month, a donation jar at the register highlights a charity and invites guests to donate. Egg Harbor Cafe matches 10% of guests’ total contributions for the month. Whether you offer a few cents or a few dollars, it adds up to make the world a better place. Do you have a suggestion for a charity that “Pay it Forward” can support? Email your suggestions with the charity name, contact information, and a description to hamco@eggharborcafe.com .
