Imagine sipping your morning coffee and knowing that you just helped a wounded veteran get to their doctor’s appointment that day.
Or pulling on your new favorite shirt and smiling because your shirt helped that veteran get their kids to school on time.
That’s the amazing feeling you’ll get when you gear up with a new coffee mug, long-sleeve or short-sleeve T-shirt, or patch between now and April 24. Each item proudly features the patriotic RED logo — Remember Everyone Deployed.
Every cent of your purchase — 100% of proceeds — goes to help purchase a new vehicle for a wounded veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Fire Dept. Coffee is proud to support our troops through this special partnership with the Associated Firefighters of Illinois Warrior Program and Rockford Firefighters Local 413.
As a company founded by professional firefighters and military veterans, we know how lucky we are to surround ourselves with people who know the value of serving others. We are beyond grateful to know that so many of our customers are working class people who support the sacrifices that our military members and their families make for our nation.
So let’s rock the RED gear with pride.
And thank you for all your support.

We celebrate our heroes every day. But on May 4, International Firefighters’ Day, we celebrate them just a little bit more.
We go out of our way to simply say thank you.
