Holiday Wish Lists Fulfilled by Starbucks Managers

On Thursday, December 13, 2012, Starbucks managers from stores in the Big Bend region joined their district manager Omega Wynn to shop for toys and clothes in support of the 2012 Child Advocates II, Inc. (CAII) Holiday Wish List Drive. Wynn is a volunteer guardian ad litem and serves on the CAII board of directors.

Every year, CAII works with local businesses, organizations and individuals throughout the area to ensure that each and every one of the children represented by our program—many of whom are abandoned, abused or neglected—receive gifts during the holiday season.

Starbucks regularly supports our program and we thank them for their help with the wish list drive. Pictured below are Starbucks store managers Niki, Andy, Austin, Mercedes, Cynthia, Jeff, Josh, Candy, Michael and Ricky doing their shopping. Click a photo to see it larger on Flickr.

    Thanks for all you do. The children in foster care are fortunate to have Omega's leadership in the community. Thanks also to Child Advocates II and their Board. You are making such a difference in these children's lives.
