Starbucks teamed up with Communities in Schools to help make sure York City students have the supplies they need this school year.
Crystal Mayers, manager of the Arsenal Road Starbucks, is in charge of community giving for the York region and brought the three Starbucks locations in the York area together for the supply drive, according to information provided by Communities in Schools.
Customers left supplies in baskets in each stores, donating enough to fill four car trunks. But in addition to that, Apple Subaru donated 50 backpacks, Office Max gave a pallet filled with spiral notebooks, and Target gave $50 for Mayers to buy things the Communities in Schools site coordinators said they need, according to the program.
Students at Goode, Jackson and McKinley K-8 schools and William Penn Senior High School will receive the supplies, according to CIS.
