The Seattle based company is offering free coffee to anyone willing to heed President Barack Obama's request that everyone get involved in service to their community.
The company is offering a free "tall" coffee Wednesday through Sunday this week for customers willing to fill out a community service pledge card at any Starbucks location.
Customers are asked to commit five hours of their time during this year for community service and volunteer programs.
In a statement, Vivek Varma, senior vice president of global affairs for Starbucks suggests five hours is "just 25 minutes a month for a year." Varma says a day reading to children at a hospital or in a park planting trees or a little time creating care packages at a food bank will easily fulfill the pledge.
