The Dickey Foundation Donates in El Paso, TX to kick off 2024

The charitable foundation to provide first responder grant this month in South Texas

Dallas, Jan. 25, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Dickey Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, provided a well-deserved grant to the responder team in El Paso, TX earlier this month.

On Tuesday, January 16, The Dickey Foundation made a stop at the El Paso Fire Department - Station 36 located at 1960 Resler Drive El Paso, TX. During this visit the Foundation presented the department with a grant of 10 sets of Dual Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), valued at more than $7,500. These light weight suits are particularly important when responding to car accidents, grass fires and other emergencies in the hot Texas heat.

“The Dickey Foundation is grateful to continue offering support for additional safety to the first responders of El Paso,” said Roland Dickey Jr., CEO Dickey’s Capital Group. “We’re honored to continue being partners in the mission of helping those brave men and women who protect and serve every day.”

Additionally in 2024, The Dickey Foundation has launched a First Responder Catering Program. This program is aimed to continue to build awareness of The Dickey Foundation, as well as highlight the charitable side of the hardworking Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Owner/Operators and Pit Crews across the country.
