|Starbucks kicks off University Children's Center fundraiser with book drive|
Running until the UCC annual fundraiser event on March 29, Starbucks on 32nd Ave. S. will give away a free tall coffee to anyone who brings in a new or gently used book.
Literacy is the theme of this year’s UCC event, with the children creating books inspired by Rick Kupchella’s “Tell Me What We Did Today,” a celebration of a child’s day through literature and art. Honorary chairperson Adele Kupchella liked the idea of the fundraiser following the close of the Writer’s Conference. UCC director JoAnne Yearwood appreciates Starbuck’s recognition of quality childcare and literacy specifically.
