Garnet Hill

With a strong commitment to social advocacy, Garnet Hill asked its customers in 2009 what charitable initiative they’d choose to support. The resounding plea to help end world hunger led the clothing and home decor company to become a strong supporter of Heifer’s domestic and international efforts.

Over the past 40 years, Starbucks has been dedicated to helping improve the lives of coffee farmers and their families. Heifer International’s collaboration with Starbucks began in 2009, when Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz visited smallholder coffee farmers in Rwanda. Hearing the farmers’ heartfelt requests for dairy cows to provide milk, better nutrition and income for their families, Schultz and Starbucks employees rallied together to provide the cows these farmers so desperately needed. In 2014, Heifer International was awarded a Starbucks Foundation grant of $750,000 to help fund the Mbozi Farmer Livelihood Improvement Project in Tanzania, providing dairy cows and training to improve livelihoods and quality of life for smallholder coffee growing communities in the East African country.
