Last Thursday in the middle of the heat, the San Marcos Grocery Outlet supported the San Marcos Fire Department by donating a crate of water, totaling nearly 300 gallons of water, and 37 cases of granola bars as a thank you for their efforts.

"We were very fortunate that the San Diego firefighters did such an incredible job and protected the San Marcos community,” stated Henry Martinez, one of San Marcos Grocery Outlet’s store owners and operators. “With scorching temperatures over 100 degrees, we wanted to help out the firefighters who were working day and night to protect our city.”

Due to the large size load, Henry made a call to the North County Food Bank to see if they could help with the delivery. By noon on Thursday, the water and granola bars were loaded onto a truck along with additional donations from the North County Food Bank and American Red Cross and delivered to the San Marcos Fire Department.

Thankfully, the fire is now 100 percent contained and the temperatures have cooled.  The San Marcos and Carlsbad community is thankful for the incredible efforts of the firefighters and first-responders
