Milford, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The SUBWAY(R) restaurants chain, which has long been committed to promoting better-for-you eating among children and adults, announced their partnership with schoolPax, a school fundraising program.
Through schoolPax, each time families dine at SUBWAY(R) restaurants and pay with their registered SUBWAY(R) Card, the school of their choice is eligible to earn cash back towards programs where money is needed most, whether it's for new computers for the lab, innovative curriculum or updated gym equipment. The SUBWAY(R) Card, is a prepaid card that can be purchased in any amount between $5 and $100 at participating SUBWAY(R) restaurants locations.
Consumers simply purchase a SUBWAY(R) Card, choose a school they would like to contribute to and register the card online. Each time a consumer uses their registered card, SUBWAY(R) restaurants offers the card users' school a contribution. By tapping into the everyday shopping habits of school parents across the nation, schoolPax has made it simple to generate dollars for schools and fund programs that benefit children's education.
"This partnership is a great fit for SUBWAY(R) restaurants since schoolPax provides consumers with a simple, easy way to raise funds for schools and SUBWAY(R) provides consumers with a simple, easy way to eat fresh," said Tony Pace, SUBWAY Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust, Chief Marketing Officer. "As an active brand, we are helping to provide busy American families with the ability to address two very important issues in daily life – nutrition and education. By eating fresh at SUBWAY(R) restaurants, they are also helping better their children's schooling."
"SUBWAY(R) restaurants are a perfect fit with schoolPAX. SUBWAY(R) School Rewards combines the hard work and dedication of both business owners and educators to help build a better future for their children and communities," said Alex DeMeo, CEO, Loyalty Exchange Partners, LLC.
