Are you sitting on your couch flipping your eyes between your Twitter feed refreshing your OKC search and your TV tuned to The Weather Channel? (Sorry if you have grand illusions of me out partying on a Friday night, I am an old soul.) The destruction hitting Oklahoma (as well as Missouri and Illinois) tonight just adds to the impact of the tornado in Moore two weeks ago. In an interesting timing silo, I was e-mailed about how Firehouse Subs is bringing aid to Oklahoma.
Remember when I told you about Firehouse’s Foundation? Well, the Foundation has already been at work to help survivors and first responders in Oklahoma:
Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has already hit the ground in Moore, Oklahoma from their Tulsa, Ft. Smith, Stillwater and Norman locations, feeding more than 2,000 box lunches to first responders and survivors thus far. The Foundation will also help fire, police and EMS in the affected areas with the opportunity to request life-saving equipment to enhance future rescue and recovery as well as replace any equipment lost in the disaster.Utilizing the Foundation’s Round Up program, Firehouse Subs is teaming up with guests across the nation to aid residents and hometown heroes in need. Restaurants are asking guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar throughout the month of June–all funds raised will be used toward Oklahoma disaster relief.
