Starbucks bringing in bucks for community

August 15, 2003

Albany - It's the first of its kind in southwest Georgia. On Monday, you can get Starbucks coffee in Albany at Meredyth Place.

It's not just about a cup of joe, Starbucks profits got toward Phoebe's Community Vision Program. Community Visions committee member, Annette Bowling, agrees, "With every cup of coffee a person buys it gives you a warm heart, but it gives you a warmer heart knowing that the proceeds are going back into the community to help some individual."

Community Visions helps organizations, like churches, encourage healthy lives through education and prevention programs.

Starbucks managers hope the new coffee shop will blend into the multi-purpose facility. Starbucks opens Monday morning at 6:30.
