Man Warms Hearts Bringing Coffee and Pastries to New York City Cops and Firemen

Starbucks employee who made a sweet gesture was filmed and now it's gone viral.

Just a short break from Brangelina for some sweet news out of New York—then back to regular programming (Brange.)

A video of a man named Germaine Zolkos is going viral after the Starbucks general manager brought bags of pastries and coffee to New York police officers and firemen who are working overtime to keep the city safe following a bomb explosion in Chelsea on Saturday night. (A real one, not one from The Real Houswwives of New York reunion.)

Germaine responded on Facebook, saying he was just trying to say thank you to the first responders who deserve it for their hard work.

“It’s the least I could have did, these guys run to danger instead of running from danger and I just figured why not,” he said. “We should be nice to each other, we should be kind to each other…people will come together as people. Little gestures open the door, by saying sorry, by getting up for someone who needs a seat on the train or bus, that’s what makes us human beings…Maybe the world can see it and maybe the world can be a better place.

“I didn’t think me giving coffee would be news, some of those guys down there working 18 hours…I thought it was the right thing to do.”

One commenter who knows Germaine weighed in, saying, “I used to work for him at the Starbucks on 330 Madison he was the GM at that location. He is great dude and cares about about military and first responders. It was a real pleasure to have worked with him.”

Another wrote: “There are heroes everywhere. Little things make a difference. Our kids and kids kids shouldn't have to live in fear. Bless u!

This was such a nice thing to do, props to Germaine for that. Can we talk about this absolute dreamboat of a firefighter!? Is that Superman? Lol”
