Who do I contact with specific questions?

You may want 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 (833) 857-2781 or email and she will connect with our local office to confirm the wish details. 

What happens if I miss the December 14 deadline?

Aspiranet can't guarantee that gifts returned to Starbucks after December 14 will make it to the child in time for the holidays. However, any gifts returned to Starbucks after the deadline will still be used to brighten the lives of youth who are at-risk or in foster care. 

Who receives the gifts?

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.
