This New Program From Starbucks Could Help Immensely
Now this is definitely an interesting way to help out.
Starbucks is a company that I'm sure you heard about, and went to at least once in your life. Well now the company is rolling out a program for its hard workers that could potentially improve conditions in neighborhoods and keep employees happy. The program, which is unnamed right now, would allow employees to work in store 20 hours, and then volunteer in community for 20 hours.
According to CNNMoney, the program is in its early stages. Starbucks is teaming up with Points of Light, a nonprofit organization. Starbucks and Points of Light select which community nonprofits that workers will join for 20 hours a week. Starbucks hopes with having employees in store and out helping neighborhoods, that they'll work at the company longer.
I really would like to see this put in motion here in Tuscaloosa. Maybe we can get more helpers at Metro animal shelter?
