Firehouse Subs Donate $25,000 to Texas Engineering Extension Service

Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation donated a $25,000 grant to fund scholarships for the TEEX fire and emergency response training program. The donated funds will allow TEEX to provide training scholarships to deserving firefighters, giving them the best education possible. The Foundation has donated more than $5.7 million to first responders and public safety entities across the nation, including more than $425,600 in Texas.

ABOUT FIREHOUSE SUBS PUBLIC SAFETY FOUNDATION

In 2005, Firehouse Subs created the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first-responders and public safety organizations. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs has given $5.7 million to hometown heroes in 36 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $425,600 in Texas.

LOCAL FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES

Each restaurant recycles leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets and sells them to guests for $2. Donation canisters on register counters explain the non-profit’s mission and collect spare change, while the Round Up Program allows guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. All funds raised benefit the Foundation.

Right now, Firehouse Subs is donating $1 to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for every photo of a pickle bucket posted to Instagram, the Firehouse Subs Facebook page, Twitter, or Pinterest with #BucketsSaveLives from December 31, 2012 - February 10, 2013 to help first responders get the equipment they need to protect and save lives.
