Help Us Help Our Heroes: 20% of Online Sales Before Oct. 1 Support Efforts to Combat Post-Traumatic Stress

September 15, 2017

When you put on a uniform — whether you’re a firefighter, a police officer, a member of the military or another service professional — you’re volunteering to do the work that others won’t do, to see things that others don’t want to see.

It’s important work, but it can take a toll. As much as we wish it could, a good cup of coffee can’t cure everything.

That’s why from now until the end of September, Fire Department Coffee will donate 20% of all online orders to support the Rosecrance Florian Program, which gives service personnel the tools to confront and overcome issues arising from traumatic experiences on the job.

 

The team at Fire Department Coffee will also be participating in the 2nd annual Rosecrance Florian Symposium on September 21-22 in Rosemont, Illinois.

The program is aimed at treating addiction, substance abuse and mental health issues, as well as job-related post-traumatic stress, anxiety and depression.

Dan DeGryse leads the program. He’s a Battalion Chief/EMT with 27 years of service in the Chicago Fire Department. He also has three decades of experience in the fields of addiction and mental health.

Simply put, Rosecrance Florian works. Those who have been through the program will tell you that it changed their lives. And we’re proud to support it.

Anytime you order from Fire Department Coffee, a portion of the proceeds goes to support firefighter and military charities, but for the rest of this month, we’re donating even more. So restock your coffee supply or maybe treat yourself to one of our handcrafted mugs.

Now is the time. This is how a cup of coffee can help change someone’s life.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the firehouse Not a creature was stirring, the coffee had run out The mugs were all stacked on the counter with care With nothing to fill them, the cabinets were bare The rookies drove me crazy, then they fell asleep After the captain made dinner, that was unfit to eat With floors to be cleaned and gifts left to wrap This was no time for a firefighter to even take a nap

Courage. Service. Sacrifice. Our nation was founded on those principles more than 200 years ago, and those same principles still guide our military members today. As Veterans Day approaches, those men and women are in our thoughts more and more. The selfless spirit that guides them is a source of inspiration for us each and every day. Fire Dept. Coffee is a company founded, owned and operated by veterans. So we’ve seen firsthand, at home and overseas, what it means to serve with a sense of d...
