Pence and his wife, Alexis, have a company, Pineapple Labs, that sells coffee. They created a Hunter Pence-themed coffee package this week, with all proceeds going to Season of Sharing Fund, a San Francisco Chronicle charity that helps Bay Area families.
It quickly sold out, so don’t plan on making any purchases, but it’s cool and worth sharing nonetheless!
