Starbucks has begun rewarding those who are on the front-lines in both the fight against COVID-19 and in keeping us well and safe.
Starbucks announced it will offer free coffee to front-line workers until May 3. In addition, The Starbucks Foundation will donate $500,000 to two other organizations helping support front-line responders.
Here are the details:
Starting today through May 3, any customer who identifies as a front-line responder to the COVID-19 outbreak will receive a tall brewed coffee (hot or iced) at no charge which includes firefighters, paramedics, police officers, doctors, nurses, hospital and medical staff and medical researchers.
The Starbucks Foundation will give $250,000 to Operation Gratitude, an organization working to deliver 50,000 care packages to health care workers, and to Direct Relief, an organization supporting the delivery of personal protective equipment and essential medical items.
