Your coffee habit could now help veterans and military spouses in their search for employment.
Starbucks is now selling special Veterans Gift Cards in an effort to support those who have served our country. With every gift card purchase between Nov. 4-11, Starbucks will contribute to Onward Veterans, which in turn will support organizations focused on veteran and military spouse employment, like Hiring Our Heroes.
Cards are available at Starbucks stores and it’s also easy to buy cards online.
Hiring Our Heroes has several veterans-focused initiatives in November.
Starbucks and Hiring Our Heroes also will promote a concert on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., which will provide an opportunity to donate to organizations that support veterans and military spouses. The Concert for Valor will include Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Eminem, Dave Grohl and many other artists. The free concert will air live on HBO.
Hiring Our Heroes on November 12 will host its 4th Annual Lee Anderson Awards Dinner, recognizing the contributions of those who have gone above and beyond to help our nation’s veterans.
