On Saturday, September 9 and for an indefinite period, all Starbucks stores in Mexico will become collection centers for the communities of Oaxaca, Chiapas, Tabasco, Veracruz and Puebla, affected by the earthquake and floods caused by the Hurricane season.
“We want to capitalize on the popularity and convenient locations of our 610 stores in 61 cities across the Mexican Republic, with the support of our more than seven thousand employees and thousands of customers, to have a positive impact on affected communities,” the chain said in a statement.
Therefore, Starbucks invited its clients and collaborators to join forces to face this contingency by donating essential supplies, such as bottled water, canned or packaged food, milk powder, blankets, clean clothes, sanitary paper and healing, among others.
Starbucks promised to deliver these products with the urgency required by affected communities in Oaxaca, Chiapas, Tabasco, Veracruz and Puebla, through Fundación Alsea and its distribution center.
“Each of our stores is part of a community, and we take our responsibility as good neighbors seriously,” it said.
