Hub City Firehouse Subs to collect funds for Hurricane Ian victims Tuesday
HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - Residents of Hattiesburg can help hurricane victims while getting lunch on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Oct. 4, Firehouse Subs restaurants, including the one in Hattiesburg, will be raising money to help Hurricane Ian victims across the Southeast.
The announcement comes on the heels of a $25,000 donation by Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation to the American Red Cross in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
The company said all funds collected on Tuesday will benefit the Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund, which aims to deliver food and support for disaster relief and recovery efforts, as well as equipment grant requests from area organizations and relief agencies.
