(MENAFN Press) For the second year in a row, hundreds of Starbucks partners (employees) and customers across the Middle East will join hands with local non-profit organisations this month in the Global Month of Service, an initiative to help address the needs of communities Starbucks operates in.

The annual initiative will be carried out in the region by the global coffee house, one of the world's most recognised brands. The 30-day community service drive encourages efforts that make a positive impact on the lives of people in local communities

Over the past five years in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), and even before the Global Month of Service was initiated, Starbucks partners have delivered over 322 projects amounting to over 12,000 hours spent in community service across 10 markets.

This year, we are looking to build on our last year's collaborations with local NGOs, and the experience we have gained through 5 years of doing community service, to deliver more hours and bring more volunteers from our own partners, customers and partner organisations in order to create a bigger community movement

Commenting on the Global Month of Service activities, Regional Communications and CSR Manager for Starbucks MENA Rana Shaheen, said: "At Starbucks, we remain committed to making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. This is the second year for the MENA region to take part in the Global Month of Service which will once again bring city-wide and country-wide Starbucks teams together as positive change makers. Starbucks partners from across the region are excited to debut a series of localised projects that best meet the needs of each community.

Starbucks is putting the word out and giving loyal customers a chance to give back to the community by volunteering
