Starbucks 2016 Gift Drive Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does the Starbucks gift drive work?

  • Select a gift tag and shop for a gift
  • Attach this tag to your unwrapped gift
  • Return the gift to your local Starbucks
  • Aspiranet will deliver your gift to the at-risk or foster youth

Q: How do I get a Tax Receipt for my gift?

Q: What is your organization’s Tax ID number?
A: Our Tax ID number is #94-2442955. Aspiranet is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations with locations throughout California.

A: Q: What if I have specific questions about the item requested on my wish tag?
Sometimes a donor may wish to confirm a size, color or other detail pertaining to an at-risk or foster youth’s wish. If you have questions about a particular wish, please contact Leanne Coronado at (844) 791-9281 or email and she will connect with our local office to confirm the wish details.

Q: If I missed the December 18th deadline should I still drop off my gift?
A: Aspiranet cannot guarantee that gifts returned to Starbucks after December 18th will make it to the child in time for Christmas. However, any gifts returned after the deadline will still be used to brighten the lives of youth who are at-risk or in foster care.

Q: Who are the children that receive gifts from the holiday drive?
A: Aspiranet serves youth who are placed in foster care, residing in residential care, in the process of being adopted, transitioning out of foster care, or who are part of families that are at-risk and participating in programs that provide extra support. Aspiranet staff work with at-risk and foster youth to collect wishes for the holidays. Aspiranet also collects gifts for youth who may come into care close to the holidays in order to ensure that each youth receives a gift. Once gifts are collected they are given to the at-risk and foster youth at annual holiday parties or during regular visits between Aspiranet staff and youth.

Q: Are there other ways that I can get involved and change the life of a child forever?
A: In addition to donating a gift at your local Starbucks there are a number of other ways you can help:

  • Donate online to help support the needs of children and youth
  • Learn more about becoming a foster or adoptive parent.
  • Explore our career page to learn about opportunities to work with children and youth
