McDonald’s Canada wants to show their appreciation and say thanks to those frontline healthcare workers who are working tirelessly to treat those in need, serve our communities and help keep us safe with further rapid scaling of vaccinations. Starting today, they are offering all frontline healthcare workers, vaccine volunteers, medical testing centre and pharmacy workers as well as emergency services and military personnel a complimentary medium McCafé Premium Roast Coffee or Tea at participating restaurants across Canada for the month of January, available at the front counter or in drive-thru with their valid work ID.
“Our purpose at McDonald’s is to feed and foster communities and this effort is aimed at acknowledging those who are doing so much to care for our communities right now,” said Gemma Pryor, Senior Director, Canada Impact Team. “Throughout the pandemic we saw our franchisees finding creative ways to support their communities in times of need and that’s what we’re seeing again here today with the free coffee offer.”
In March 2020, McDonald’s Canada partnered with its independent franchisees from coast to coast to coast, giving away more than one million complimentary cups of McCafé Premium Roast Coffee and Tea. Since then, their franchisees have continued to show their support within their local communities, on many occasions providing coffee or breakfast to local healthcare workers and volunteers.
Now, McDonald’s is bringing back the offer for a limited time amid the continued push for Canadians to get their vaccine or booster, alongside the ongoing challenges of treating and testing patients in the pandemic. It’s a simple gesture of appreciation for those who continue to be on the frontline, protecting and caring for our communities across the country.
