The Starbucks Gift Drive runs from November 20th to December 17th. Pick up a gift tag from one of these participating Starbucks storesdonate online. The tag will contain a special holiday wish from an Aspiranet youth. Here are the steps for donating a gift:
Select a gift tag and shop for a gift
Attach this tag to your unwrapped gift
Return the gift to the Starbucks where you selected the tag
Aspiranet will deliver your gift to the at-risk or foster youth
Sometimes a donor may wish to confirm a size, color or other detail pertaining to an at-risk or foster youth’s wish. If you have questions about a particular wish, please contact Leanne Coronado at (833) 857-2781 or email Holidays@Aspiranet.org and she will connect with our local office to confirm the wish details.
A: Aspiranet cannot guarantee that gifts returned to Starbucks after December 17th will make it to the child in time for Christmas. However, any gifts returned after the deadline will still be used to brighten the lives of youth who are at-risk or in foster care.
A:Aspiranet serves youth who are placed in foster care, residing in residential care, in the process of being adopted, transitioning out of foster care, or who are part of families that are at-risk and participating in programs that provide extra support. Aspiranet staff work with at-risk and foster youth to collect wishes for the holidays. Aspiranet also collects gifts for youth who may come into care close to the holidays in order to ensure that each youth receives a gift. Once gifts are collected they are given to the at-risk and foster youth at annual holiday parties or during regular visits between Aspiranet staff and youth.
