Starbucks is more than just a coffee shop. As an organization, they exist to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup, and one neighbourhood at a time. To us, their spirit of philanthropy and care for the community is absolutely inspiring! Since 2011, Starbucks has partnered with Coldest Night of the Year in many ways:
- Local stores sponsor individual locations, providing tasty treats, hot drinks, and warm smiles at CNOY in-person events across the country.
- Starbucks employees sign up to participate as fundraisers and walkers. Across Canada, these teams have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for hard-working local charities.
- In 2022, 1602 Starbucks fundraisers on 164 teams competed on the CNOY Challenge Leaderboard to see which group would top the charts as the most generous team!
- Learn more about one extra special team in Durham Region who raised over $20,000 in 2022.
Thank you Starbucks! It’s cold out there, but Canada is a little bit warmer because of all that you do.
