Suspended coffee; realised hope

When I first heard that Starbucks had chosen Oasis as their ‘suspended coffee’ partner, my mind began to buzz with possibilities
Hans Lak's insight:

This is how the large corporations can make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!

We’re no strangers to Starbucks’s generosity – in fact we’ve been working together for years. In the past, our community hubs have benefited from volunteers getting their hands dirty while giving our buildings a spring-clean, our gardens a much needed revamp and one of our youth centre a welcome renovation.

But the suspended coffee scheme is different. It gets to the heart of what we’re really about.  Sue Robins Director of Fundraising and Communications OASIS!  Thank you for making a DIfference

Oasis Starbucks and Fans!
