Detroit Firefighters’ ‘Engine 40 Foundation’ Awarded $1,000 as July Hero

Aug. 18, 2015
Every year for 18 years Engine 40, a Detroit Fire Department has worked to engage and improve the community in which they work. In as many years they have hosted an annual Back-2-School rally that continues to grow and thrive with contributions from community members and local businesses like Thornton & Grooms.

Thornton & Grooms Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing has been serving the metropolitan Detroit community for more than 75 years. In an effort to give back to the community that has supported them, Thornton & Grooms awarded the $1,000 ‘Christmas in July’ Hearts & Heroes award to Engine 40 Foundation.

The Christmas in July award pooled 2015’s Hearts & Heroes competitors that hadn’t won in previous months and allowed them a second chance by promoting exposure, likes and shares on their Facebook pages.

Engine 40 Foundation focuses on giving back to the community and families in the Detroit area by providing school supplies and interactive events that expose the youth to a Detroit that has long passed, is not yet forgotten and soon to return, according to Chris Sumrall the organizations director.

Thornton & Grooms’ donation will help support the annual Back to School Rally that will shut down the corner of Dexter Ave. and Ewald Circle in Detroit. The event takes place this Saturday, August 29, 2015 starting at 12 p.m. and will include a rock climbing wall, horse back rides, zip-lining, music and performances and so much more.

Thornton & Grooms uses their Monthly Hearts & Heroes Award to provide assistance to local charitable organizations, schools, or groups in need, in their service area; recognizing their efforts and awarding $1,000 to their cause.
