Want to help your neighbor get a job, why don’t you take a trip to your nearest Starbucks? In one of the latest efforts to help with job creation, the coffee lover has a chance to help out by donating $5 in addition to the daily purchase of a cup of coffee. According to the Associate Press, Starbucks will begin collecting donations in an innovative collaboration that could result in real progress.
Starbucks is partnering with the non-profit Opportunity Finance Network to create the “Jobs for USA” program. The non-profit group works with almost 200 community development financial organizations to help provide small business and community development loans.
The donation drive will begin on Nov.1 and the large Seattle-based coffee chain assures that all donations will go directly towards loans for companies and organizations. In exchange for the donation, customers will receive a red, white and blue wristband that reads “Indivisible.”
Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz, says he feels personally responsible in helping to stimulate economic growth. This latest venture is only one of his many efforts to assist in US job creation. Not only is Starbucks hiring 200 people a day, Shultz also sent over 200,000 of his employees a memo in August imploring them to contribute to the economy in any way that they can.
He has also requested his CEO colleagues to end their contributions to political campaigns until political leaders can devise a long-term economic plan. In addition, Shultz has started the website Upwardspiral2011.org, hosted a national telephone forum and bought full page ads in two of the nation’s largest newspapers.
While Starbucks has not estimated how much money it hopes to raise through the program, AP reports that millions of people frequent one of the nearly 7,000 Starbucks stores in the US daily. Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zani believes that not only is the idea worth the effort, in theory it should have impact.
The Starbucks Foundation will provide $5 million to get the “Jobs for USA” program up and running. Loans from Opportunity Finance Network have assisted organizations from charter schools to grocery stores, all based on their potential to create jobs. Since its creation 27 years ago up to 2009, Opportunity Finance Network has produced almost 300,000 jobs.

(NYT) — From a 542-square-foot office above a bustling intersection in Harlem, the Rev. Nicholas S. Richards is building what he hopes will be a 7,000-mile bridge to the eastern highlands of Ethiopia. It is a bridge more than 200 years in the making.
In that modest two-room office off East 125th Street, the Abyssinian Fund, the only nongovernmental organization in Ethiopia formed by an African-American church, theAbyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, finally has a home.
