Help City Light and Starbucks Make Holiday Spirits Bright for Foster Children

Visit a participating Seattle-area Starbucks to help City Light and Treehouse make spirits bright this holiday season.

Seattle City Light is teaming up with Starbucks partner stores for a second year to spread joy to foster children this holiday season!

Last year, City Light launched a donation drive for Treehouse, a local non-profit organization which provides foster children in Washington State with the support they need to thrive.

What started as a small drive in partnership with the Seattle Municipal Tower Starbucks branch quickly expanded to a handful of other nearby Starbucks locations, culminating in over 300 gifts being collected.

Thanks to the overwhelming success in 2017, we have expanded our partnership to 16 Starbucks locations this year!
