This Year's YA Charity

This year, Michigan Young Agents (YA) have chosen Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation as their charity. The Foundation is committed to providing lifesaving equipment and needed resources to first responders and public safety organizations in the communities they serve. Our first responders need our support more than ever. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and unprecedented disasters have made equipment needs greater and resources harder to find.

Your donation to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation will help our hometown heroes in Michigan save lives. Since inception, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has awarded more than $60 million to public safety organizations across the country including more than $1.4 million in the state of Michigan.

Watch for details to find out how you can help YA support Michigan first responders!
