If you’re a police officer, firefighter, paramedic, doctor, nurse, medical researcher or hospital or medical staff member, there’s some good news for you today: Starbucks has announced that you can come by for a free coffee. So you can stop trying to make all those fancy coffee drinks at home.

Animal Shelters See Uptick in Fostering During Coronavirus Pandemic

In a press release, the favorite coffee chain announced that all customers who identify as frontline responders to COVID-19 can receive a tall hot or iced coffee at no charge until May 3.

Starbucks' company-owned locations have shifted to drive-thru only for the time being. Customers can either order at the drive-thru ordering point or use the Starbucks app to order ahead and pick up at the drive-thru window.

The chain has also announced that The Starbucks Foundation, its philanthropic arm, will donate $500,000 to U.S. frontline responders. Half will support delivery of 50,000 care packages to healthcare workers, and half will support delivery of personal protective equipment and essential medical items.

From offering free home food delivery to allowing customers to donate to their favorite restaurant directly through its Yelp page, brands are going above and beyond to help out during this difficult time. These small acts of kindness can truly make a difference.

With COVID-19 cases spiking across the country once again, Starbucks is bringing back a program that offers free coffee to health care professionals and other essential workers.

For the entire month of December, Starbucks is offering a free tall coffee to “any customer who identifies as a front-line responder.”

Scroll down to see a full list of eligible customers.

Starbucks offered the same promotion in March and April, when the coronavirus first spread exploded throughout the U.S. Now, with cases spiking across the country — and expected to increase further ahead of the holidays — Starbucks is bringing the promotion back.

Eligible customers can get a free tall hot or iced coffee at “company-operated locations and select licensed stores” now through Dec. 31.

Starbucks is also making a $100,000 donation to the National Alliance on Mental Illness to support essential workers who may face mental health hurdles following the new rise in cases. They also plan to surprise 50,000 essential worker customers with “care packages and Starbucks gift cards.”

According to Starbucks, the following workers are eligble for free coffee: “Front-line health care providers, first responders including: doctors, nurses, public health workers, pharmacists, dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics, police officers, dentists and dental hygienists, mental health workers (therapist, psychologist, social worker, counselor, etc.), hospital staff such as janitor/housekeeping/security, and active-duty military.”
