The Starbucks chain of coffee shops is offering first responders including physicians and flight attendants free cups of coffee throughout the month of December.

The action is intended “to show appreciation for those keeping our communities safe” amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the company said.

“It has been an extraordinarily difficult year, especially for the front-line responders who are serving our communities,” said Virginia Tenpenny, the company’s vice president of global social impact.  “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.”

Patrons merely need to identify themselves verbally to their baristas when ordering.  The list of occupations covered includes doctors, nurses, public health workers, pharmacists, dispatchers, fire fighters, paramedics, EMTs, law enforcement officers, dentists and dental hygienists, mental health workers, hospital staff, members of the military, contact tracers, vaccine and pharmaceutical researchers, pilots, flight attendants, TSA, and medical researchers.

The Seattle-based company said that there is no limit as to how many times a first responder can take advantage of the offer, which is good for a tall brewed cup of coffee
