The veteran and firefighter founded coffee company is donating 20% of their sales to support the cause.
From September 15-30, Fire Department Coffee will donate 20% of all online sales to the Rosecrance Florian Program to support mental health care for service professionals.
The program provides uniformed service personnel--including firefighters, police, military, medical personnel, and chaplains--with the tools they need to confront and overcome the serious issues that arise from traumatic experiences on the job.
Fire Dept Coffee is the creator of the highest-octane yet easiest-drinking coffee on the market for the hardest working men and women in the nation. Since the launch of FDC, the roasting company’s mission to give back to their fellow service men and women has strengthened, and their bonds with service based charities have deepened. FDC is honored and extremely appreciative of all the support they have received over the last year to help raise funds for charitable organizations.
“Since the launch of Fire Department Coffee, we’ve donated a portion of our proceeds to support firefighter and military charities,” said FDC founder and US Navy veteran Luke Schneider. “We’ve decided to focus on the Rosecrance Florian Program because our service men and women are facing an unspoken epidemic. This program gives so many another chance at life.”
The Rosecrance Florian Program was developed by Dan DeGryse and Dr. Raymond Garcia. DeGryse is a battalion chief and emergency medical technician with 27 years of service in the Chicago Fire Department. He also has three decades of experience in the fields of addiction and mental health. Garcia is a psychologist and Addiction Specialist trained in treating uniformed service personnel.
The recovery program targets the complex issues that are unique to the culture of uniformed service personnel. It offers treatment for PTSD, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, and more in the format that’s right for the patient.
In addition to their promotion, Schneider and the Fire Department Coffee team will also be participating in the 2nd annual Rosecrance Florian Symposium on September 21-22 in Rosemont, Illinois.
To get involved, online shoppers can order regular or dark roast coffee in 1-pound bags, 6-pound bags or 12-packs of single-serve cups. Fire Department Coffee creates its made-to-order coffee at its roasting facility in Rockford, Illinois.
