SPOKANE, Wash. — Two local Firehouse Subs franchisees provided 215 meals to first responders and children in their communities.

Jared Staples, who owns a location in Coeur d’Alene, and Eric Johnson, who owns the location in North Spokane, were able to donate the meals in partnership with Firehouse Subs’ Public Safety Foundation.

Staples donated 108 meals to the Salvation Army and 79 meals to Kootenai Medical Center, while Johnson donated 28 meals to children at the Northeast Youth Center.

“I called a few people to see if there was a need for donated meals and when I found out there was, I was happy to help how I could,” said Staples. “I’m thankful for the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for helping to make this donation possible.”

The Public Safety Foundation gathers funds to help feed healthcare workers and first responders on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations to the fund can be made at Firehouse Subs locations or online here.
