Free Starbucks for First Responders

Starbucks is offering free cups of appreciation to health care employees, hospital staffers, police, firefighters, and other “front-line responders” this month.

From now through Dec. 31, employees in those categories with a valid employee ID may receive a free tall brewed coffee (hot or iced) any day at all company-owned stores and many licensed outlets.

Besides doctors, nurses, paramedics, police and firefighters, the offer applies to pharmacists, dispatchers, dentists and dental hygienists, mental health workers (therapist, psychologist, social worker, counselor), hospital staffers such as those who work in janitorial, housekeeping and security roles, and active-duty military.

UPDATE: The Public Information Office has spoken with Starbucks. The promotion also includes FD Logistics and EOC/OEM. Simply present your Dept. ID.
