Dickey’s Barbecue Pit celebrates first responders across the nation by asking guests to donate to The Dickey Foundation during National First Responder Week, May 6 through 12.
The Dickey Foundation, Dickey’s charitable organization, aims to increase financial support and public education, as well as providing the equipment necessary for the safety of first responders nationwide. While guests can donate to The Dickey Foundation year-round, Dickey’s asks guests to thank their community’s police, fire and EMT by making a monetary donation in-store or online during this week that is truly focused on these heroes.
“The Dickey Foundation sets out to support the brave men and women who risk their lives every day to ensure their communities safety,” says Maurine Dickey, Founder of The Dickey Foundation. “Our goal is to continuously give first responders and their families the necessary support to ensure their safety and success in the communities they serve.”
