SEATTLE, Wash. (Metro) -- The Starbucks coffee chain is hoping to raise big bucks for job creation with made-in-the-U.S.A. items.
It's touting its line of "Indivisible" products that includes coffee, mugs and tumblers.
The items are produced as much as possible in the U.S., with a share of the proceeds from their sale going to Create Jobs for the USA.
Starbucks says the effort will generate more than 80-million dollars for loans to community businesses.
Customers can choose from a coffee blend that's roasted in the U.S. and labeled with the name of the city where it's produced or a mug made in Ohio using materials from several states.
There's also a tumbler made in Chicago.
