TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(WTXL) — Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has partnered with Firehouse Subs restaurants to feed healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Firehouse is also helping individuals and families in need and seniors who are unable to leave their homes through the Foundation’s COVID-19 Disaster Relief Fund.

On a local level, Tallahassee franchisee Brandon Jerkins has donated 65 box lunches to school volunteers, school bus drivers and school administrators in the Crawfordville community.

“These volunteers have been working selflessly to make sure our local children have what they need during these difficult times,” said Firehouse Subs Franchisee Brandon Jerkins. “They've been working around the clock to make sure students who rely on school meals are still getting well-balanced meals, so it's the least we can do to make sure the administrators, teachers, bus drivers and volunteers are being fed as well.”

Since March 18, more than 43,000 meals have been provided through Foundation's relief efforts to firefighters, police officers and healthcare workers, as well as individuals and families in need and seniors who are unable to leave their homes.

The company says throughout the month of April, all funds collected by Firehouse Subs restaurants through Round Up, canister donations and recycled pickle bucket donations will support immediate COVID-19 disaster relief efforts
