Subway® Restaurants are getting into the holiday spirit with a fundraiser to benefit local cancer patients. With Gift Wrapped, a portion of every wrap sold through December 31 will benefit cancer patients undergoing treatment at the Kirkland Cancer Center, up to a total donation of $3,500.
In a partnership with the Kirkland Cancer Center and the Foundation, Subway® is sponsoring a home for cancer patients needing assistance during treatments. Subway House is a part of West Tennessee Healthcare’s current Hospitality House Program, which provides lodging for patients and families with travel constraints that would negatively impact their healthcare.
“On behalf of the Subway franchisees we are proud to partner with The Foundation and support our neighbors in need through the Subway House” says Nancy Bradford, Subway franchisee and cancer survivor. “Over the last four years we have raised over $25,000 and those dollars stay here in the West Tennessee community.”
The double meat wraps are a perfect blend of meat, veggies and sauce, bursting with flavor. The new Signature Wrap chef inspired lineup includes: Chipotle Southwest Steak & Cheese; Savory Rotisserie-Style Chicken Caesar; and Turkey, Bacon and Guacamole. You can also have your favorite Subway sub made as a wrap. Helping your neighbor never tasted so good!
