Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll enlisted some of his players to serve as guest baristas at local Seattle Starbucks locations as a means to support his charity “A Better Seattle.”
The players will appear at select Starbucks locations in Seattle on Tuesday, Sept. 22, according to Starbucks.com.
This is a joint effort with another group called “Alive and Well,” a part of Seattle’s YMCA, which is “dedicated to helping youth prevent and recover from violence and pursue their potential.”
Jackie Liao, director of Community Investments at Starbucks, conveyed these thoughts about the partnerships.
“Starbucks is proud to collaborate with the Seattle Seahawks and A Better Seattle. Together we can help support young people and provide a bridge to critical services, education and job opportunities.”
Win or lose on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, it’s nice to know Carroll and his players will be winning off the field to support the community that supports them so much during the season.
Could we have a Kam Chancellor sighting? Sources say, probably not. Will there be smiles all around? You bet.
