The Starbucks Foundation Donates $125,000 for Hurricane Matthew Relief


The Starbucks Foundation will contribute $100,000 to the American Red Cross to aid Hurricane Matthew relief efforts in the U.S. and Caribbean. The Foundation will donate an additional $25,000 to Team Rubicon to support a team of volunteers providing direct relief to Haitians impacted by the storm.

Customers who wish to aid in the recovery may do so in any U.S. company-operated store through a donation to the American Red Cross at the point of sale beginning October 8. Starbucks partners (employees) who make a personal contribution to the relief efforts can request matching funds through the company's Partner Match program.
