Central to our values is our mission to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time. Since 2011, our partners have celebrated our commitment to improving our local neighborhoods with each April with a month dedicated to community service.
The original Global Month of Service (now called the Global Month of Good), inspires partners around the world to lead neighborhood service projects and donate tens of thousands of hours to their communities by cleaning parks, painting murals at elementary schools, renovating houses and more.
By addressing the needs most critical to their own communities, partners are able to make a real impact on the lives of those around them. One year, they focused on supporting Opportunity Youth, planning hiring fairs where young people received help building their resumes and honing interview skills. Some were even hired on the spot, further strengthening the bonds between our stores, our partners and their local neighborhoods.
