While they may be known for their mouthwatering hot subs, piled high with meats and cheeses, Firehouse Subs also gives back to the community by way of their Public Safety Foundation. This Thursday, October 8th, Firehouse Subs will be launching their very first Foundation Day of Thanks.
Firehouse Subs will be celebrating a $39,000 donation to the Kettering and Fairborn Fire Departments. “Donations from Firehouse Subs round up at the register program and the sale of our 5 gallon pickle buckets have raised the funds to provide two state of the art chest compression systems to Kettering and one to Fairborn through our foundation,” according to Dave Baker, franchise owner of the Kettering Firehouse Subs. “In the past year we’ve funded two of these automated defibrillators for Huber Heights, one for Vandalia and I believe Xenia was just approved for one. I’ve heard that Kettering has already saved 2 lives with their equipment.”
Founded in 2005, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works to provide funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first responders and public safety organizations. Since the organization was founded, they have donated over $14 Million to heroes nationwide and nearly $650,000 in the state of Ohio alone.
You can stop by Firehouse Subs to join in the festivities! The fun begins bright and early at 10:30AM at the UD location on Oakwood Avenue. Meet Firehouse Subs representatives and firefighters and other first responders and enjoy a sub while you’re at it.
