Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Gratitude comes in many forms. And, right now, there is no other group at the top of our thank-you list than first and front-line responders. Police officers, firefighters, paramedics, doctors, nurses and hospital workers are all superheroes for their bravery, care and kindness, during this chaotic time. Many businesses and restaurants are showing their appreciation with FREE food, giveaways and deals.
Please doublecheck for whom the offer applies, as each one varies — some are specific to first-responders, front-line responders or hospital workers, or a combination thereof.
The offers are available at participating locations, while supplies last. Some deadlines continue to be extended, so also check the offer’s details.
