Cocoa Grinder offers free printing to students dealing with coronavirus outbreak

Posted: Updated:

A local cafe chain is helping students who have been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.

Abdul Elenani, owner of Cocoa Grinder, is providing free printing services at six of the business's locations.

He tells News 12 there is no limit to how much a person can print and no purchase of food is necessary.

Elenani says he came up with the idea after he realized students couldn't go to class in an attempt to limit exposure to the coronavirus.

He says he wants to provide a space where students can come study and do their work.

"In times of need like this I think everybody should open their doors and kind of offer just something," Elenani says. "It builds up and as soon as we're united, we'll get over this in no time."

There are Cocoa Grinder locations in Bay Ridge, Midwood and Crown Heights.
