Team Rubicon, the innovative veterans group that has been making its mark on disaster response since the 2010 Haiti earthquake, is opening an office at the NorthStar Coffee House in Portland June 9. NorthStar will donate 5 percent of its revenue to Team Rubicon’s Region 10 operation as part of this new partnership. Grabbing an Americano, latte, Morris Brothers icer or other NorthStar offering helps military veterans perform volunteer disaster relief work across the nation and around the world. Team Rubicon’s regional leaders will be on hand for this kick-off event, which includes live music and runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Drink it all in at the corner of Lombard and Interstate.
