Every new connection we make opens the door for us to meet incredible people doing important things in the service of others.
Last year, we were honored when Meijer stores began stocking Fire Dept. Coffee products. Well, it so happens that Meijer, which owns 250 stores across the Midwest, has its corporate headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Through a mutual connection, we recently got to meet some of the awesome folks involved in the Grand Rapids Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Foundation. This organization supports programs, events and other efforts designed to enable GRFD to operate more efficiently, promote public safety, enhance community relations, and engage in other activities to support the Grand Rapids community.
One of the things they do best is support ill and injured first responders.
So it was an honor for the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation to join with our partners at Meijer to donate $5,000 that will be used specifically to benefit first responders in need. We made the donation on behalf of Meijer, and members of the Meijer team presented the check to the GRFD Fire Prevention Foundation during the recent Firefighter Challenge event in Grand Rapids.
“We could not be more pleased with how this all came together,” FDC Founder and CEO Luke Schneider said. “We’re thankful for Meijer, the Grand Rapids Fire Department and its Fire Prevention Foundation for working with us to support first responders in overcoming the challenges related to illness or injury.”
