Drivers Pay It Back At Local Starbucks

MEDFORD, Ore. – The Thanksgiving spirit spread through a local drive thru Starbucks.

Starbucks workers said many people paid for the drive through coffee orders in the cars behind them; that started a chain reaction with that person paying for the coffee order in the car behind them as well.

It’s something employees say has happened before at the location on 62 and Delta Waters, but they’ve seen even more giving going on today than usual.

“People don’t expect that and I think that’s the best part is that you don’t expect getting paid for and so it comes as a surprise and you pay it forward hopefully,” said barista Brandon McKee.

More than a dozen people paid for another person’s order before noon on Thanksgiving.
