For Starbucks – community means two things – being involved in the communities where we are, and backing young people – nationwide.
Being good neighbours is something we take seriously and is led locally by our store managers. They know what is important to their communities and how to best support them. So, whether it is providing coffee and refreshments for the school Christmas Fayre in Crouch End or fund-raising the Children’s Hospital in Sheffield our store partners are committed to doing good locally.
In addition to being good neighbours we can use our size and our brand for good, by bringing people together, inspiring change and making a difference. In Ireland and the UK we are focused on backing young people. With 6 million 16-24 year olds in the UK, and one million of whom are currently not in education, employment or training, our commitment to backing young people has never been more important.
