Starbucks is Offering Free Coffee to First Responders
Starbucks announced yesterday that it will give a FREE coffee (Hot or Iced) to any customer who “identifies as a front-line responder” to the Coronavirus pandemic.
It's going on today through May 3rd, 2020. Starbucks also mentioned they are donating $500,000 to support first responders and health care workers.
What an amazing act of kindness. I don't think we can thank those front-line workers enough. The donation will be divided equally between the organization Direct Relief to support the delivery of personal protective equipment and essential medical items and Operation Gratitude, which will “deliver 50,000 care packages and handwritten letters to first responders and health care workers.
What workers recieve FREE coffee at Starbucks:
- police officers
- hospital and medical staff
- medical researchers
Last week, Starbucks switched to only serving customers via drive-thru or deliveries in order to reduce contact during the pandemic. This change is expected to last two weeks.
