This is from Fred and was addressed to the forum but never made it.

we've had starbucks volunteers and recieved some star-Bucks $.  i think it's a great program, they volunteer in small friendly groups and are available mornings (when you would think they'd be needed at the shop).  the non-profit that provides the most rewarding service project get the most volunteers and the most money, so it's a bit competitive, but fun.

Starbucks has a program you should know about.  Here in Oklahoma City they sponsor work days at Community Gardens and pay $10 an hour for every volunteer that shows up, including their own employees whom they encourage to attend.  Work days here are 3 to 5 hours long and once a month.  The funds go to the Community Garden fund at said garden in the form of a check.  This is a national program.  Contact you local Starbucks and get on the wagon!
Despite the Community Garden program having been temporally sabotaged here by politics and greed, several of the gardens are using this program to great benefit.
