Making More Than Coffee - Making a Difference

Making More Than Coffee - Making a Difference

While you're out don't forget that two Starbucks are located in Albany. Since opening at ONE Meredyth Place, and at Phoebe's main campus, Starbucks has received an overwhelming response from the community.

Joel Wernick, Phoebe president/CEO, said Phoebe decided to partner with the "undisputed first-class purveyor" of coffee products as an innovative way to enhance Phoebe's Community Visions program, which grants funds to non-profit organizations for health-related initiatives. Starbucks proceeds will go to support Community Visions heath programming grants.

"The opportunity to support Community Visions through Starbucks increases the potential for community outreach, which is so important to our mission," said Wernick. "Community Visions makes a difference in the health of our citizens and our communities throughout Southwest Georgia."

Starbucks is located at 2709 ONE Meredyth Drive and in the Wetherbee Lobby at Phoebe's main campus. Both locations offer indoor and outdoor seating. Hours of operation at Meredyth are 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Starbucks at Phoebe is open 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
