Looking for an afternoon jolt? The Seahawks have you covered.

The club has joined forces with Starbucks and head coach Pete Carroll's A Better Seattle for a one-week campaign aimed at raising donations to fund the efforts of community outreach workers on the streets of six cities around the Puget Sound - Seattle, Renton, Kent, Tukwila, Auburn, and SeaTac.

Today, the Starbucks Foundation will make an initial grant of $50,000 to kick off the week-long endeavor, with coach Carroll and a select group of Seahawks players acting as surprise guest baristas to help encourage donations at Starbucks locations throughout the Seattle-area.

For a complete list of venues featuring the Seahawks visit Coach Carroll and players will be set to take your orders from 3 - 4 p.m. PT.

If you can't make it out for today's events, you can donate to A Better Seattle's efforts online at, or at participating Western Washington Starbucks through Tuesday, October 29.
