United Way and Starbucks team up for back to school

Starbucks and United Way volunteers will get a feel-good energy boost this month by pairing coffee and volunteerism, as we kick off a series of volunteer events at 9 local Starbucks stores across Greater Boston.  As families begin preparing to go back to school, Starbucks and United Way are partnering to create literacy kits that will go to local early childhood development programs to help children and families in our neighborhoods develop their reading skills.

This week, volunteers in Braintree, Quincy, and West Roxbury kicked off the efforts.

See which event is in your neighborhood Starbucks and join us for a pick-me-up!
