At Ocean State Job Lot, our communities are at the forefront of our business, and first responders are no exception. During Ocean State Job Lot’s First Responder Deal Day, we want to say “thank you” to the brave everyday heroes in our communities by honoring the work they do so selflessly to keep us safe and protected when emergencies strike .

From Thursday, March 14, 2024 through Wednesday March 20, 2024, if you’re a first responder or public safety professional, you will get 40% back as a Crazy Deal Gift Card when you spend $20 or more in store. It’s our way of showing our appreciation for all that YOU do each and every day to help serve and protect those in our communities.

Winter Coats to URI for Veterans in need

We work with our first responder partners in the day-to-day operations of the Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation. Through a recent donation, the Campus Police at the University of Rhode Island (URI) received 50 Buy-Give-Get coats and 50 OSJL Charitable Foundation buckets with lids to distribute to The Center for Military and Veteran Education, located on the URI campus.

These cold-weather kits will go a long way toward ensuring veterans in need can keep warm through the frigid months.

Whether it’s firefighters battling blazes, paramedics rushing to save lives, doctors and nurses in the emergency room, or police officers keeping our streets safe, we believe these heroes deserve our appreciation. Their courage and dedication often go unnoticed, but they’re always there, ready to jump into action when we need them most. So, from all of us at Ocean State Job Lot, we extend our gratitude to our first responders. Thank you for all that you do for our communities.
