2020 has certainly been the most unusual year for us all. It's not only unusual but very difficult for many. With the exception of those that have actually suffered from COVID, those that have had the most trying year is the frontline workers.

Doctors, nurses and all other hospital and medical personnel have had a horrendous 8 or 9 months with not a whole lot of hope for things to settle down until mid summer of 2021. Also, first responders can are also included in this great deal.

According to Virginia Tenpenny of Starbucks ''We want to show our deep gratitude for those who support and protect us every day with a small gesture of kindness and a cup of coffee...''

Starbucks recently made the announcement on their Facebook page that all frontline workers like hospital staff, including support staff like cooks, janitors, etc. and all first responders who identify themselves as a frontline worker or first responder will receive a free tall brewed coffee, hot or iced. This deal is good for the rest of 2020.

I can't imagine the stress of working as a frontline worker or first responder during this crazy year but we all appreciate their great effort and hope they and the rest of us can soon return to some kind of normal. I'm sure we'll appreciate it more than we ever did before.
