Free Drip Coffee in Exchange for Service

Hands On Network, the prominent volunteerism organization, partners with Starbucks to promote community service. Jan. 21 through 25, Starbucks offers you a free drip coffee if you pledge five hours of volunteer service.

In the wake of the most service-focused MLK Day ever (thanks to Barack Obama’s example, and the impetus of Service Nation), it seems everyone is getting into the  act of doing good. Hands On Network and Starbucks have come together to answer President Obama’s call to service.

On Starbuck’s Pledge 5 website, you can watch a counter add up all the hours pledged in exchange for a 12-ounce drip coffee. More importantly, you can search volunteer opportunities available through Hands On Network.

(You can also search volunteer and year of service opportunities on Idealist.org.)

Here’s the Starbucks ad:
