The workers are eligible to receive a free tall-sized hot or iced coffee from Wednesday through May 3.

The Starbucks Foundation will also donate $500,000 to support frontline responders with equal donations to Direct Relief to support the delivery of personal protective equipment and essential medical items and to Operation Gratitude to deliver 50,000 care packages and handwritten letters to first responders and health care workers.
