FORMER MARINE TURNED RESTAURANT OWNER FEEDS THOUSANDS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE HEROES
Firehouse Subs Franchisee Daniel Pettit saw a need in his Manchester, New Hampshire, community and chose to help feed these local heroes, from first responders to healthcare workers. As a former Marine, he understands the importance of keeping our emergency responders well fed so they can continue to help the community.
Pettit and his team have worked to donate and deliver more than 2,100 meals to local heroes around Manchester. Donating more than 100 meals to local firefighters, police officers, Mayor Joyce Craig and her team at the local Emergency Operations Center, Pettit even received a shout out on Twitter from Major Joyce Craig and the Manchester Police Department. Aiming to do more, Pettit collaborated with the American Legion to have Firehouse Subs’ meals delivered to all ten fire stations in Manchester. In addition, Pettit and his team have donated meals to Meals on Wheels and local nursing homes.
Since March 18, Firehouse Subs restaurants and Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation have donated thousands of meals to healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as individuals and families in need and seniors who are unable to leave their homes.
