We all know that all of our health care workers and first responders have been working their proverbial tails off.

So, Starbucks wants to keep you all caffeinated.

The coffee empire announced in a statement Wednesday that any first-line responder to the pandemic will receive free coffee through May 3.

The workers that are included in this are police officers, healthcare workers, firefighters, paramedics... you will be  able to get a tall coffee either hot or iced for FREE!  Keep in mind this is for to-go/drive through orders only, and some of the stores have been closed.  So, this is available at participating Starbucks coffee shops.

And Starbucks is taking care of their employees too. In a statement, they made it known that they will be paying their employees for 30 days whether they come into work or not, plus covering their mental health and sick pay benefits.
