[Indianapolis, Indiana] – Starbucks, in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, is hosting a statewide day of service to engage Bigs (mentors) and Littles (youth) in philanthropy on Saturday, February 15. Locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI) has been partnering with Starbucks for over eleven years to provide matches with this opportunity and this year, Starbucks has engaged BBBS agencies throughout the state to participate. At select Central Indiana Starbucks stores, Bigs and Littles will get together to create cards for local law enforcement, fire departments, and EMTs.
“Starbucks is an instrumental partner in supporting our mission to empower the potential of kids in our community,” said Darcey Palmer-Shultz, BBBSCI Chief Executive Officer. “For more than 11 years, thanks to Starbucks, our Littles and Bigs have enjoyed a meaningful service activity, explored career possibilities, and connected with fellow matches in our program. We’re looking forward to once again hosting local law enforcement, fire departments, and other local heroes at this year’s activity for a chance to meet our Littles and Bigs, let kids know that they care about them, and consider getting involved in our Bigs with Badges program.”
36 matches from BBBSCI and members from BBBSCI and Starbucks will be present at select Central Indiana Starbucks stores (list below) and Bigs and Littles from around the state will also be participating at Starbucks stores in Bloomington, Columbus, Ft. Wayne, and Terre Haute.
