Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is donating $15,037 to Walton Emergency Medical Services and the official hand over of the donation will be at 3 p.m. Thursday at the Firehouse Subs restaurant in Loganville. The restaurant is located at 4639 Lawrenceville Road, Loganville, GA. Walton County EMS used the donation to purchase a chest compression system and accessories that will be used to assist first responders by delivering uninterrupted chest compressions at a constant rate and depth to cardiac arrest patients, helping improve a patient’s chance of survival.
Local Firehouse Subs representatives as well as local first responders will be in attendance and will be showcasing the lifesaving equipment purchased with the funding.
ABOUT FIREHOUSE SUBS PUBLIC SAFETY FOUNDATION
In 2005, the Firehouse Subs Founders established the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, lifesaving equipment, and educational opportunities to first responders and public safety organizations. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has granted more than $46 million to hometown heroes in 49 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $2.8 million in Georgia.
IN-RESTAURANT FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES
Each restaurant recycles five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $3 donation to the Foundation. 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. The Foundation is also the beneficiary of a Charitable Sales Promotion where Firehouse of America (FOA) will donate a sum equivalent to 0.11% of all gross sales with a minimum donation of $1,000,000 through December 31, 2019.
