A donation worth more than $17,000 dollars. Customers that eat at Firehouse Subs are given the option to round up their bill to the nearest dollar. That money is then donated to the First-Responders and Public Safety Organizations.
Since 2005, Firehouse Subs customers have donated over $9 million dollars.
Fort Wayne Fire Department Chief Amy Biggs says this is the great partnership.
"That we can be a participant in their success as a growing business here locally in Fort Wayne and that they pay that back. They pay that forward to the emergency responders in the community. It's a great partnership, it's a great relationship and in the end, the community benefits."
