Following the news yesterday of Delta Sonic offering free foods to medical personnel and first responders; Starbucks will be doing the same, only with its signature item, coffee.
According to WIVB, Starbucks will be offering free coffee to all first responders and frontline workers. That includes police officers, firefighters, paramedics, doctors, nurses, hospital and medical staff, and medical researchers.
The deal runs until May 3rd.
Starbucks will also be donating "$500,000 to frontline workers, $250,000 going to Operation Gratitude to support the delivery of 50,000 care packages to health care workers and $250,000 going to Direct Relief to support the delivery of personal protective equipment and essential medical items." according to WIVB.
It's no secret that first responders and medical frontline workers are putting in extra time during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and it's great to see companies taking action to make sure they're taken care of.
