Subway restaurants located in the Greater Los Angeles area are joining forces with Make-A-Wish across Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Tri, Kern, and Inyo Counties to give back to the local community. From May through September, more than 1,240 local Subway restaurants will participate in the “You Share. We Share” campaign to help support Make-A-Wish.
The “You Share. We Share” campaign encourages the community to get out and share their weekends with Subway restaurants, and Subway will share right back by donating a percentage of weekend sales, up to $100,000, directly to Make-A-Wish across Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Tri, Kern, and Inyo Counties. As locally owned and operated franchises, Subway is excited to be able to further its commitment to the local community.
“We are honored that Subway has chosen Make-A-Wish as its partner in the ‘You Share. We Share’ campaign.This innovative approach to fundraising demonstrates Subway’s commitment to philanthropy and local engagement, and invites the community to get involved with wishes in a meaningful way. Thanks to the participation of our friends and neighbors throughout the region, Subway’s contributions will help us grant more wishes to more eligible children,” says Breena Gold, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish, Greater Los Angeles.
During the “You Share. We Share” campaign, Subway restaurants and Make-A-Wish will facilitate “wish parties” for children with life-threatening medical conditions. “Wish parties” provide an experiential moment in which the children’s “wish” is revealed.
In addition, Subway restaurantswill launch its “You Share. We Share” ambassador program where team members will be visiting local communities in the Greater Los Angeles area recognizing and rewarding random acts of “sharing” — people practicing kind, thoughtful, deeds. Ambassador rewards will include but are not limited to: $5 Subway cards, “You Share. We Share” bags, and other Subway memorabilia.
“The ‘You Share. We Share’ campaign highlights Subway restaurants’ core values in giving back to our local communities. We are thrilled to be partnering with Make-A-Wish to help achieve our goal to raise $100,000 and spread the message of sharing and giving back. The campaign is simple, just visit your local Subway restaurant on the weekend and you will make a difference for a Make-A-Wish child in the Greater Los Angeles area,” says Bob Grewal, Los Angeles Subway multi-unit owner.
