John Calipari’s constant Zooming is paying off – literally. Kentucky’s head coach’s facebook series, named Coffee with Cal, has officially raised over $1.5 million for COVID-19 relief.
The series began by donating funds within the heart of Wildcat country to Fayette County schools. From there, it continued to grow. By the end of the 12 week web series, Coffee with Cal was making donations nationwide. The beneficiaries include Blessings in a Backpack, No Kid Hungry, Feeding America and World Central Kitchen.
