Starbucks Helps Keep the King-Lincoln District Beautiful

As part of the Keep Columbus Beautiful campaign, Starbucks employees spent the day volunteering in the KLD. Most of the attention was focused on the corner of N Garfield Ave and E Long St, where volunteers weeded, planted flowers, and built new picnic benches next to the Los Potosinos food truck. Others spent time sprucing up the vacant storefront next to our Home Ownership office in the Gateway Building. The day of service helped to further Homeport's Retune the King-Lincoln District initiative, which aims to convert vacant spaces into usable commercial options for creative entrepreneurs and small businesses.
