Thank you for joining us to support A Better Seattle
We’re proud to partner with the Seahawks in supporting A Better Seattle, the community initiative founded by head coach, Pete Carroll. Together with the YMCA’s Alive & Free program, A Better Seattle is giving new opportunities to at-risk youth in our community.
The Starbucks Foundation made a $50,000 grant to A Better Seattle, kicking off a week-long campaign to support the initiative. On October 23, Coach Carroll and eight Seahawks players visited local stores to try their hand as guest baristas and raise awareness and donations for the cause.

Thanks to all of the local customers and Seahawks fans who came out to support this effort. And if you missed the in-store program, you can still donate at www.abetterseattle.com.
Stay tuned to find out about future programs as part of our ongoing partnership with the Seattle Seahawks!
