Collinsville Starbucks hosts fundraiser for Illinois Center for Autism

News-DemocratJuly 3, 2014 

The Starbucks in Collinsville is sponsoring a fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday to benefit the Illinois Center for Autism.

Local artists and clients from the Illinois Center for Autism will decorate Starbuck's reusable cups with pre-sketched and exclusive artwork. Customers will have the opportunity to support the cause by purchasing one of the "customized cups" for a $1 and, if desired, making a donation of their choice to the center.

"Every Starbucks store is part of a community, and we're committed to strengthening neighborhoods wherever we do business," said Jason Caldarera, district manager for Starbucks.

The Starbucks is located at 1077 Collinsville Crossing Blvd.
