Give water, get a free sub on Saturday

(WSPA) — You can help local heroes beat the heat and help fight your hunger at the same time.

Firehouse Subs representatives said they will give  customers a free medium sub of their choice if you donate a 24-pack of unopened, bottled water on Saturday, Aug. 5.

Organizers said the water will be handed out to local first responders.

This is the 6th annual H2O for Heroes day. Firehouse Subs Franchisee Elliott Goldsmith at the Woodruff Rd location tells 7 News that early 30,000 cases of water were collected nationwide last year.

Firehouse Subs said the event also falls on National Sandwich Month and that there is a limit of one sub per person, per case of water.

As always, a portion of your purchase will go toward providing life-saving equipment for first responders.

The Woodruff Rd location will host Mauldin Fire department firefighters and equipment for children to learn about.
