Chock full o'Nuts Partners with PDF to Fight Parkinson’s

PDF and Chock full o’Nuts are joining forces to fight Parkinson’s, beginning with nationwide promotions to raise awareness around the country about the disease and the need the fund research for new treatments and a cure.

PDF and Chock share a common history, having both been founded by the late William Black. This partnership will begin just in time for Parkinson’s Awareness Month this April and it is coming to a community near you. Where should you look to find it?

  • Check your Sunday circulars on the weekend of March 27 for a special coupon and advertisement promoting Parkinson’s Awareness Month.
  • Check out the Chock full o’Nuts coffee cans in your local grocery store. This spring, new cans will be featuring information about PDF’s mission to fight Parkinson’s disease.
  • If you live or work in New York City, or will be visiting the city, you may notice Chock full o’Nuts trucks promoting the fight against Parkinson’s and distributing free coffee. You may also visit Chock’s coffee shops, such as Chock 23 on West 23rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, to see cups and other items with information inviting people to join the fight against PD. 

Robin Elliott, PDF’s Executive Director, said of the partnership,

“PDF has been singularly committed to finding the causes of and a cure for Parkinson’s disease since that day back in 1957 when Mr. Black first found out that his close friend and associate had developed Parkinson’s and realized to his amazement that there were no effective treatments for the condition. We are certain that Mr. Black would be happy to know that the two businesses he founded are now partnering to push forward progress toward these goals and we thank Chock full o’Nuts for their support.”
