Starbucks Sending Petition to Washington

Starbucks held a national campaign all weekend long to help end the government shutdown. And here in Terre Haute, the three locations had dozens of signatures on the "Come Together Petition." Starbucks officials are collecting all the names to send to Washington, asking Congress to reopen the government, pay our debts and pass a long-term budget deal.

Patrons say it's a great opportunity for everyone, no matter your location, to have your voice heard.

"Everybody is frustrated, no matter which party you belong to or down, everybody just wants to be heard. Maybe it won't do any good but you can come in here and have a coffee a good to say hey I'm mad and I want you guys to get your act together," said customer Stephanie Salter.

Sunday was the last day to sign the petition; all signatures must be in by the close of business.
   
Starbucks is already estimating over one million signatures collected nationwide.
