A cup of gratitude

As reported in news outlets, front-line healthcare workers and emergency responders are welcome to free cups of coffee from Starbucks during December in appreciation of their care and service throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any customer who identifies as a front-line responder will receive a tall brewed coffee (hot or iced) at no charge. Those who are eligible include doctors, nurses, pharmacists, firefighters, mental health workers and more.

Hospital staff, such as security or housekeeping staff, and active-duty military are also included. Those who qualify can redeem the offer as many times as they like through the end of the year.
