What:

Starbucks partners attending the coffee company’s Global Leadership Conference will support four local nonprofit community projects, coordinated in partnership with Mayor’s Volunteer Initiatives Program, a division of the Department of Neighborhoods. The projects are:

* Revitalizing the Fifth Ward
* Partnering with AAMA
* Sorting at the Houston Food Bank
* Supporting Local Nonprofits at the George R. Brown Convention Center

When:

October 4-6, 2012

Where:

Revitalizing the Fifth Ward – Lyons Avenue & Fifth Ward Community

Partnering with AAMA – George I. Sanchez Charter School, 6001 Gulf Freeway, Building E, Houston, TX 77023

Sorting at the Houston Food Bank – 535 Portwall Street, Houston TX 77029

Supporting Local Nonprofits – G. R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida de las Americas, Houston, TX 77010

Notes:

Nearly 9,000 Starbucks store managers are in Houston for the 2012 Starbucks Global Leadership Conference taking place at the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Toyota Center, October 4-6. Starbucks conference attendees will volunteer blocks of time during the conference to carry out four community service projects that will impact an estimated 200,000 Houston residents.

The City of Houston Mayor’s Volunteer Initiatives Program, a division of the Department of Neighborhoods, is coordinating the projects in partnership with Starbucks. Starbucks projects the contribution of 42,000 volunteer hours by its employees for the execution of the projects.

“We welcome Starbucks to our City and commend the company’s leadership and commitment to giving back,” said Houston Mayor Annise Parker. “We are proud to assist in this huge effort that will make a difference for so many Houston citizens.”

“At Starbucks, we’re committed to helping communities thrive wherever we do business. One meaningful way we do this is through community service,” said Cecilia Carter, vice president, Global Diversity Policy and Advocacy. “As the host city for our 2012 Global Leadership Conference, Houston provides our partners with the opportunity to work with local organizations and make a positive and enduring impact in this city.”

The four community service projects are: Revitalizing the Fifth Ward, Partnering with AAMA, Sorting at the Houston Food Bank and Supporting Local Nonprofits at the George R. Brown Convention Center. In Fifth Ward, volunteers and nonprofit partners will work on neighborhood cleanup, community gardens and exterior home repairs, among other projects. At AAMA, volunteers will renew the Sanchez Charter School facilities and provide mentoring for students. At the Houston Food Bank, volunteers will help sort food for distribution to neighborhood pantries. Numerous nonprofit organizations will benefit from public service activities at the George R. Brown Convention Center as Starbucks volunteers carry out agency-specific tasks and assignments.
