National Mentoring Month - January 2018
January is National Mentoring Month, and we're celebrating all month long! Here are some of the ways we're celebrating our volunteers, partners, and supporters who put kids first all year long!
- Starbucks Appreciation Days: As a thank you to the volunteers who inspire their Littles all year long, Starbucks is offering all active Bigs a FREE all (12 fl. oz.) beverage of their choice each Friday in January. Present your BBBSCI volunteer ID card or your promotional postcard at participating Central Indiana Starbucks stores to receive your free tall beverage (12 fl. oz.) beverage on January 5, 12, 19, & 26. Only "stand alone" Starbucks stores are participating in the promotion. Starbucks counters inside retail stores (like Meijer and Target), airports, hotels, etc. are not participating in this promotion. Click here for a list of participating stores in Central Indiana.
