ZIONSVILLE — A coffee shop in Zionsville is giving first responders and healthcare workers free coffee and treats as a way to support them as they continue to work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through the end of April, any active police officers, emergency medical services personnel, firefighters, doctors, or nurses, can get free coffee or treats at Bites Coffee and Dessert Bar.

"It's the little bits that can sometimes make things a little better," co-owner Victor Gosnell said. "Grabbing a cup of coffee and a treat brightens up someone's day. Everybody can't be out and shouldn't be out. For the people that have to be out to grab a little something and feel appreciated. It makes us feel good."

Some friends of the business donated a large amount of gift cards to make sure they can continue supporting first responders and healthcare workers.

If you would like to support the business and first responders, you can also buy a gift card.
