Starbucks supports Caritas helping to spread some #RedCupCheer

This holiday season Starbucks partners in Austria have chosen to support Caritas Gruft as our Red Cup charity partner, building on previous work with the charity.

Caritas Gruft provides vital care and support for homeless people in Vienna – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This ranges from warm food, hot showers, clean clothes and a safe place to sleep, to long-term assistance from the charity’s team of qualified social workers, psychiatrists, psychotherapists and civilian volunteers.

In addition to a charity donation Starbucks partners will be volunteering time to help, collecting for the charity and raising awareness of their work.

Starbucks district manager for Vienna, Alex Angelopoulos, says:

“We have a history of supporting Gruft and the team has chosen to help the charity this holiday because we want to show our appreciation for their work in our community and at the same time, do something for those in greatest need.”
