First Responder Scholarships

Fire Training at Goodfellow Air Force BaseRound Up For The Rookies

When you "Round Up" your tab to the next dollar, you will be donating your pocket change to the Company 7 BBQ First Responder Fund. This pocket change may change your life by enabling students to get an education and possibly become your local Firefighter, EMT, or Paramedic.

For example, if your check total is $14.65 your server will ask you if you would like to round up to the nearest dollar making the check $15, then .35cents will go to the Company 7 BBQ First Responder Fund.

Funds will go toward:

  • Tuition
  • Books
  • Equipment
  • Training
  • First Responder Community Improvements

Company7 BBQ is teaming up with Sinclair Community College to offer scholarships for their Fire Science Technology programs.
