Starbucks is rewarding some of our heroes in the safety and health care industries with free tall brewed or iced coffees. The company announced that they are offering free coffee for frontline healthcare workers and first responders through May 3.
Police officers, firefighters, paramedics, doctors, nurses, hospital staff and researchers can get a free tall hot or iced coffee at Starbucks until May 3, 2020. Employees are working long hours to keep this health crisis at bay, and they deserve a little boost.
This offer of free coffee for frontline workers was inspired by employees and partners who have been supporting those who are keeping our communities safe – particularly responders on the front line of the COVID-19 outbreak. They’ve been organizing deliveries, coffee donations, and sending messages of encouragement and support to hospitals, nursing homes, grocery stores, police stations, and more in their local communities.
Starbucks has closed select locations across the U.S., and has closed seating and pickup at all cafes, but many locations are still offering drive-thru and delivery. However, some locations within or nearby hospitals remain open.
Starbucks also announced that it had donated $500,000 total to Operation Gratitude and Direct Relief, two organizations that work to help front-line responders. See press release here.
While this offer doesn’t include grocery store workers – we see you! You’ve had a few crazy weeks, and we thank you.
