In 2011, Starbucks provided over 220,000 3-packs of Starbucks VIA® to the USO for their care package program.Although Starbucks does not themselves directly donate to military personnel, they do get their coffee into the hands of those serving in the U. armed forces through their partnership with the USO.The claim that Starbucks would ever have said “they don’t support the War and anyone in it” is false, in light of what various news accounts show us about the coffee retailer’s attitude towards those who serve in the armed forces.In addition to what Starbucks themselves say of their beneficences to soldiers, we know from different newspaper articles of other instances of glad-hearted support.In July 2004, a Starbucks in Cincinnati was reported to have been practically overflowing with people making yellow ribbons in support of Keith “Matt” Maupin, a soldier whose fate was then uncertain (it has subsequently been reported that his remains have been found and positively identified), along with red, white, and blue ones to show support for American troops in Iraq.In June 2004 in Cleveland, when the mother of one serviceman called her local Starbucks to arrange for the shipping of some java to her son, the employees at that store insisted on paying for 30 pounds of coffee as their gift.Starbucks partners receive one pound of free coffee each week as an employee benefit (known as “partner mark-out”).
That viral missive proclaimed that Starbucks had not only refused a request for free product from some U. Marines serving in Iraq, but had retorted that “they don’t support the war [in Iraq] and anyone in it”I have indeed confirmed the fact that Starbucks charged rescue workers 0.00 for 3 cases of bottled water on September 11, 2001, so the following info that was passed on to me would not be surprising to me at all!!
Starbucks wrote back telling the Marines thanks for their support in their business, but that they don’t support the War and anyone in it and that they won’t send them the Coffee.
So as not to offend them we should not support in buying any Starbucks products.
It is that e-mail which continues to circulate to this day. Wright has since learned that what he heard was in error, and he has subsequently tried to set things right by issuing the following retraction: Dear Readers, Almost 5 months ago I sent an email to you my faithful friends. I heard from word of mouth about how Starbucks said they didn’t support the war and all. They have personally contacted me and I have been sent many of their Company’s policy on this issue. Wright has been unable to produce the reply his buddy supposedly received from Starbucks, and the folks at Starbucks deny engaging in any correspondence on such matter prior to this rumor coming along.
I was having enough of that kind of talk and didn’t do my research properly like I should have. So I apologize for this quick wrong letter I sent out to you. Given that no copy of the letter appears to exist, neither one resting in the hands of the Sergeant’s comrade, nor one residing in Starbucks’ files, the rumor about the java vendor’s harsh response to a coffee-hunting Marine should be dismissed.
