In advance of Thanksgiving, staff at the Mashpee Starbucks organized a drive, collecting toiletries and baby items for HAC families who were formerly homeless.

The drive is just the latest example of how the coffee shop has helped support our clients most in need over the years. “We like to give back to the community,” Starbucks Shift Manager Dillon Probert said.

Now the store, as well as the Hyannis Starbucks, is encouraging customers to help stuff stockings for teens who are homeless or at risk of homelessness by donating a range of items, including hair products; bath and baby products; toothbrushes; deodorant; sports water bottles; candy or other wrapped treats; socks; shaving kits; cards or small games; nail polish; nail care items; ChapStick; and other similar, small items.

Donations can be dropped off at either the Mashpee or Hyannis locations through Monday, December 17.
