How every purchase made at this Houston coffee shop saves lives
A 2nd Cup coffee shop has turned into a pandemic pantry, where you can help in the fight against human trafficking.

HOUSTON, Texas -- A non-profit coffee shop in the Houston Heights is on a life-changing mission.

A 2nd Cup is dedicated to fighting human trafficking in Houston, with proceeds going toward aftercare solutions for survivors.

Normally, A 2nd Cup is filled with visitors, stopping in for a quick caffeine jolt. But amid the pandemic, the coffee shop is helping both survivors and the community in a new way.

It has temporarily transformed into the Pandemic Pantry, offering everything from toiletries to cleaning supplies and pantry essentials.

Customers can have their orders delivered or pick up their bags at the shop.
