Foundation donation

.

On Thursday, Oct. 16, at 10:30 a.m. at the Firehouse Subs Restaurant at 560 Hwy. 17 N. in North Myrtle Beach Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is celebrating the donation of much needed equipment to the Loris Volunteer Fire Department.
Attendees will include local firefighters, Firehouse Subs franchisees and area representatives Bryan and Mary Paquin and Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation programs manager Jackie Gubbins.
Loris Volunteer Fire Department received two thermal imaging cameras worth more than $13,000. The donated cameras will detect body heat and hot spots in burning buildings, allowing firefighters to reach victims quicker and put out deadly fires.
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 $11 million to hometown heroes in 41 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $750,900 in South Carolina.
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.
