Customers who identify them as 'first responders or frontline workers supporting the healthcare system will be "provided with a free tall hot or iced coffee."
Moreover, the company is also planning to donate $500,000 to two different organizations working to aid the work of people who are working on the frontline of the pandemic.
Some reports suggest half of the amount will go to 'Operation Gratitude,' an organization working to deliver 50,000 care packages to people in the healthcare industry.
And the other half will be given to 'Direct Relief,' an organization that helps the delivery of personal protective equipment and essentials items.
While all these funds are still on a planning phase, it's assumed that Starbucks will execute it sooner. And we can't be happy enough that the company has come up with these brilliant ideas during the time of crisis.
