MAKING CONNECTIONS TO GREAT CAUSES
The Leading Authorities, Inc. team is in contact with many great people and organizations everyday. Sometimes, we are able to connect our clients to do good. One of the speakers LAI is pleased to represent is Jim Donald, the Chairman of Albertson’s and the former CEO of Starbucks, Haggen Food & Pharmacy, Extended Stay Hotels, and Pathmark Supermarkets.
When Rainey Foster, the executive vice president at Leading Authorities speakers bureau, mentioned that a friend stationed in Afghanistan was missing his favorite coffee, Jim jumped into action. 13 cases of Starbucks Via soon arrived at Bagram Air Base for the troops.
We would like to thank Jim for his generous contributions!
