USA. HMSHost is marking the efforts of first responders – the “everyday heroes” who put their lives on the line and support local communities – through an exclusive promotion with Coca-Cola.

First responders will receive a complimentary 20oz Coca-Cola with any food purchase at selected HMS-operated airport restaurants and motorway service plazas until the end of December.

The co-promotion started on 23 November to include today’s (26 November) Thanksgiving Day celebrations.

HMSHost noted that many first responders are flying and driving to destinations in the service of others.

“HMSHost is proud to support first responders and give back to this exceptional community during the holidays. We are particularly inspired by their efforts on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic and are grateful for their service” – HMSHost Vice President of Marketing and Communications Atousa Ghoreichi
