3 Quick and Easy Ways To Help Schools

School is in session, and teachers and students need your help.

Buy Starbucks Gold Coast Blend
Starting October 4, buy a specially marked bag of Gold Coast Blend-Morning Joe Edition and we’ll donate $5 to help support schools. Look for the bags with the $5 DonorsChoose.org donation stickers. To direct funding to the public school classroom project of your choice, visit DonorsChoose.org/starbucks

So pick up a bag and choose a project that inspires you!


Not into coffee? You can still help by going directly to the original citizen philanthropy website. It connects donors to individual teachers who need specific supplies. Some requests are as basic as construction paper and glue sticks, which really shows you there’s a problem funding our schools right now. You can search by state, district, or schools most in need.

Here are 23 in Lake County:


This website matches donors with schools and teachers in need of supplies which you pledge to send them directly.
