Starbucks move perks up St Michael's
STARBUCKS has nominated St Michael's House as one of its charities.
The relationship includes a long-term fundraising target of €100,000 towards the "My Life, My Way" project, which will be achieved through donations from coffee sales.
Starbucks is donating 10 cent for every coffee sold on the first day of each month to the project.
The coffee giant has also employed two St Michael's House service users and has vacancies for two more positions in the Westmoreland Street and Stillorgan Starbucks coffee stores in Dublin.
The "My Life, My Way" project is a pilot project to encourage communities to work together with people with intellectual disabilities to ensure they are fully involved and supported by their local community.
Barbara Wiseman, Head of Fundraising for St Michael's House, said she was delighted that the charity had been selected by Starbucks.
