The only thing that makes us feel quite as good as pouring a fresh cup of our favorite coffee is knowing that our coffee is helping us give back to support firefighters and other first responders around the country.
We’re always looking for new ways to make a bigger impact.
That’s why we are thrilled to announce the launch of two new clubs that will not only tantalize your taste buds and elevate your wardrobe but also help do real, tangible good in our communities.
Beginning on July 1st, we invite you to join the Fire Dept. Coffee Club and the Fire Dept. Shirt Club, each created with "giving back" at their core.
Each club will help benefit a new fire department each month, and the coffee and shirts will be created with a clear connection to the department of choice.
July’s department is the Green Bay Metro Fire Department. Green Bay Fire Chief Matthew Knott is a 25-year veteran of the fire service and got his start in Rockford, Illinois, where he worked alongside FDC founder Luke Schneider, and other members of the FDC team.
The Green Bay Metro Fire Department participates in various charitable projects in the community, but the funds from the July Fire Dept. Coffee clubs will directly benefit Green Bay's ill or injured firefighters.
“We have a great bunch of people here with huge hearts and who are in it for the right reason,” Chief Knott said. “Like most departments, we’ve had firefighters who have experienced cancer and are still dealing with it today. Contributions from FDC can really go a long way to help make ends meet, make sure bills are paid and their family is taken care of.”
The Fire Dept. Coffee team visited Green Bay in late June to kick off the new clubs. We got to meet many of the 212 employees across the department’s nine fire stations. They welcomed us with open arms, and it’s an honor to know that FDC and our amazing customers will be able to help them if they find themselves in need.
Green Bay represents the first of many departments that we’ll support with our two new clubs.
Part of the fun of being a coffee fanatic is exploring, experimenting and trying new roasts. That’s what you’ll get when you join the Fire Dept. Coffee Club, plus $2 from every Fire Dept. Coffee Club order goes back to support the fire department for that month.
Every month, we’ll send you a new roast to enjoy. Through the packaging, the tasting notes and more, it will reflect our chosen department and help you feel connected to the good you’re doing by drinking Fire Dept. Coffee.
We won’t give too much away just yet, but we can tell you that the July coffee club selection is one that will taste especially good with coffee or cream added. After all, Wisconsin is the Dairy State.
We believe that by combining our love for coffee with a commitment to supporting charitable causes, we can make a real difference in the lives of our first responders and the communities they serve.
When you join the Fire Dept. Coffee Club, you become part of an even bigger community that values first responders and the sacrifices they make every day. And great coffee. We also value great coffee.
Firefighters wear their pride on their sleeves. And their chests. And their backs.
It’s why the Fire Dept. Coffee shirts we sell have been so popular year after year.
It’s what led us earlier this year to launch the Charity of the Month Shirt Club, which has now evolved into the Fire Dept. Shirt Club to pair with our new coffee club. Don’t worry, if you’re already a member of the existing shirt club, you’re now a member of the Fire Dept. Shirt Club.
Every month, $5 from every Fire Dept. Coffee Shirt Club order goes back to support the same department as the Fire Dept. Coffee Club, allowing us to amplify our impact and make an even greater difference. Our first shirt will be a tribute to the Green Bay Fire Department and help provide funds for the incredible work they do to support first responders.
As a member, you’ll get a new shirt every month with a unique design to reflect a new department.
Each shirt is a wearable symbol of your support, and a way to raise awareness for important causes while looking stylish.
We believe that by wearing our values, we can spark conversations and inspire others to join us in making a positive change.
These new clubs are the next evolution in the mission that has guided us since we launched Fire Dept. Coffee. It’s always been about creating the next great roast to fill our mugs, while giving back to those in need — which fills our hearts with a humble satisfaction.
We’ve been honored that so many coffee lovers like you have joined us in this mission over the years, and we’re excited to see how much more of an impact we can make, one delicious cup of coffee and one stylish shirt at a time.
Thanks to your support with a successful launch of these two clubs, we were able to donate $10,000 to the Green Bay Metro Fire Department. This donation will help firefighters in need within their department. We are grateful for your unwavering support and honored to make this meaningful contribution.
