Do you think it's outrageous how much Starbucks charges for a cup of coffee?
Well, it's hard to put a price on charity, and that's what Starbucks Coffee Company is doing right here in Houston.
CEO Howard Schultz said, "I think what we've learned over the years is that the culture and values of a company isn't only about the work, it's about being part of something larger than yourself."
More than 11,000 Starbucks managers are in the Bayou City, teaming up with local community leaders and volunteers to help clean up 5th Ward. It's a part of town that holds a lot of this city's history.
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee said, "This is a district that had the original settlement houses. So what it means is an affirmation that you can beautify, but you can preserve history."
Schultz said, "This is a perfect opportunity to help people who I think in a sad way have been left behind by America."
Just goes to show you not all corporate America is bad.
