Starbucks is very committed to our nation’s military services. In 2013, Starbucks hired an estimated 10,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2017. And, for last year’s Veterans Day, according to CNBC, the coffee company hired more than 8,000 since taking on the commitment. They have also shipped 60 pallets of whole bean coffee and more than 175,000 sticks of instant coffee to our nation’s troops overseas. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz recently appeared in the news for saying he wants to raise national awareness for veterans and what it means to serve by hiring veterans to recruit more veterans within the company. He told Jim Cramer, “What we need inside Starbucks in the HR group is we need veterans recruiting veterans who understand their language, their challenges, their issues. So the people who are recruiting veterans at Starbucks are the people who have worn the cloth of the nation.”
With today being Easter Sunday, keep in mind that many places are closed. Banks are closed down and there is no mail delivery. This also means that post offices are closed. Many stores and restaurants operate on holiday schedules, while some are simply closed.
