Coffee for a Cause


For Immediate Release:

The NJ FMBA is proud to announce a partnership with Fire Department Coffee, Inc. The NJ FMBA and its members are eligible to purchase Fire Dept Coffee at a discount for the month of October using promo code NJFMBA and will receive 15% off their purchase. In addition to the discount to our members, the Fire Department Coffee has pledged that 15% of every order purchased using our promo code will be donated back to the NJ FMBA Foundation to support the Mark A. Virag Memorial Cancer Fund. 

Along with providing a growing selection of incredible coffee — including its signature spirit-infused roasts — Fire Dept. Coffee also supports heroes in need through the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation. Ten percent of net proceeds are donated to help provide essential resources and assistance to first responders who have been injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges. If you, someone you know, or an organization you’re familiar with are in need of support, you can apply for assistance from the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation.

The Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization supporting groups that help firefighters and first responders who are injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges.

Each month, their first responder and firefighter support foundation directs 10% of net proceeds from Fire Dept. Coffee, as well as other charitable gifts, to support one or more worthy organizations or individual heroes in need.

Fire Dept. Coffee is a veteran-owned business dedicated to providing great-tasting coffee to people everywhere. Every order is freshly roasted in Rockford, Illinois, by a dedicated team of firefighters, first responders, and coffee connoisseurs.

Inspired by the vital role that coffee plays in helping firefighters stay alert and energized through long shifts, Fire Dept. Coffee was founded in 2016. Founder and CEO Luke Schneider is a full-time firefighter/paramedic and a U.S. Navy veteran who teamed up with firefighter/paramedic Jason Patton who is also a full-time firefighter and VP for Fire Department Coffee.

Fire Department Coffee is run by active and retired firefighters, including our operations officer and chief coffee roaster.
