Starbucks commitment to helping communities thrive – inside our stores and in the neighborhoods where we live and work –is an important part of our existence. We believe that individually and collectively our company, partners (employees) and customers can make a difference and create positive change in our communities. Join us in reaching our goal of one million community service hours annually by 2015. Every hour can make an enormous difference.
Starbucks Community Service website will help us reach our goal. On the site you can join partner-led service projects and share your experiences with the community. You can see the impact we’re making in our communities throughout the U.S. and Canada, and watch our community service hours grow.
We’re encouraging Starbucks partners to contribute volunteer hours in their communities and record their efforts on our newly designed site – now open to customers too. Partners can create or lead existing community service projects in their neighborhoods and invite customers to join them. Last year in the U.S. and Canada, Starbucks partners led more than 2,000 service projects. With your help we can grow the number of projects and the impact this year.
Thanks for your interest in supporting communities with us. Together we can make a difference.
