We would like to commend the representatives from Oakdale’s local Starbucks, as well as the Starbucks on Highway 108 in Riverbank. This group of people came to Oakdale’s Community Sharing on Tuesday (Dec. 23) to distribute coffee, hot cocoa and peppermint sticks to our local people waiting for food from the Community Sharing food bank. Community Sharing distributes food each week to some of the needy in Oakdale. During Thanksgiving and Christmas we endeavor to provide turkeys, ham and all the extra trimmings to make a traditional holiday meal.
The representatives from Starbucks made this experience truly enjoyable – in addition to the coffee, etc., they arranged for music and even a Santa Claus for the children. The children were treated to gifts as well. We believe that the Starbucks people are to be truly thanked for their generosity of spirit and community service.
