FRISCO, Texas - (BUSINESS WIRE) - May 26, 2017 - Jamba, Inc. (Nasdaq: JMBA), a leading lifestyle brand whose mission is to inspire and simplify healthy living, today announced its national partnership with Folds of Honor, a national non-profit committed to supporting the education of children and spouses of veterans killed or disabled while serving our nation.
Today through July 4, 2017, participating Jamba stores will sell signature tumblers to raise funds for educational scholarships in support of Folds of Honor’s mission.

The custom Jamba tumblers were designed by past Folds of Honor scholarship recipients.
“Serving our communities, inspiring healthy living, and supporting education has been at the core of the Jamba brand since our beginning,” noted Dave Pace, CEO of Jamba Juice. “We’re humbled to partner with Folds of Honor this summer to support families of those that have sacrificed for our country.”
