President-elect Obama recently announced the creation of the Renew America Together Initiative, a call for community service headed by General Colin Powell, www.usaservice.org.
I’m pleased to report that Starbucks is partnering with the HandsOn Network to make it easy to participate in the President’s call for national service.
Together, we will aim to raise over one million hours of community service by offering our stores across the nation as a place to make a pledge of community service in the new year. More detail on our efforts is imminent. Check out http://pledge5.starbucks.com.
This is going to be a very cool experience in our stores. While volunteering and commitment to the communities we serve is a long-standing priority here at Starbucks, being part of this initiative at this time will make it easy for many of our customers who want to be part of community renewal and service. Special thanks to our many partners and customers who will participate all around the country. I’m proud we are doing this.
