Local News

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — A restaurant chain with locations in Hampton Roads is hosting a donation drive to bring drinking water to first responders.

Firehouse Sub’s annual “H2O for Heroes” event is slated for Saturday, August 7. During the event, guests who walk into a Firehouse Subs location with a 24-pack of bottled water can receive a free medium sub of their choice.

Water donations will benefit local fire and police departments, emergency victims, and senior/community centers and aid those in need of water during the summer months when dehydration and heat-related illnesses are most threatening.

Since the event began nationwide in 2016, Firehouse Subs has collected over 4.1 million water bottles for first responders across the country.
