Firehouse subs lends helping hand to firefighters

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A restaurant chain, Firehouse Subs, Monday morning donated equipment worth more than $1,600 to local volunteer firefighters.  The donation was a set of emergency lights (called a "Torrent Light Bar") for a fire truck. 

Each Firehouse Subs restaurant recycles leftover five-gallon pickle buckets and sells them to customers for $2.  That money is then donated to fire departments.  Each restaurant also places a donation bucket near the cash register to collect additional donations from customers.
