The Dickey Foundation, the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit charitable organization, sets out to support local first responders across the nation. This year, participating Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations are seeking donations from guests the week surrounding National First Responder Day, October 28.
From October 26 to November 2, Dickey’s guests can donate to their first responders at their local Dickey’s location and receive a “badge” to sign and hang on the wall.
“At Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, we are honored to have the privilege of working closely with our first responders and giving back to them in any way we can,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “The Dickey Foundation has recently taken on amazing initiatives that could only be carried out with the support and donations of our community, including outfitting our local Dallas Police Department with top of line ballistic vests, supporting our Houston neighbors after Hurricane Harvey and much more.”
To receive the “badge”, guests are encouraged to donate $1 at participating Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations. Guests always have the opportunity to donate to The Dickey Foundation supporting local first responders online or in-store.
