SUBWAYA® Bring A Blanket Collection

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On Sunday, January 5, 2014, participating local SUBWAY ® restaurants are partnering with Bridging to collect blankets that will be distributed to individuals and families in need. Located in Bloomington and Roseville, Bridging distributes more than 6,000 beds annually, but they are always short of blankets to accompany them. 

Now in its twelfth year, the SUBWAY ® Bring a Blanket collection is the primary means of securing blankets for the more than 4,000 families Bridging serves each year. 

Everyone is invited to bring new or gently used, clean blankets to any participating SUBWAY ® restaurant.  In return for their donation, contributors will receive a free, regular six-inch SUBWAY ® sandwich (one free regular six-inch sandwich per person, regardless of the number of blankets donated). Especially needed are blankets that fit full and queen-size beds. 

The SUBWAY ® Bring a Blanket collection was developed in 2002 by local SUBWAY ® restaurants to address the need of families to stay warm. In the past ten years, the SUBWAY ® Bring a Blanket collection has secured more than 60,000 blankets to redistribute to people in need.

More: Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the greater Twin Cities, is the largest furniture bank in North America. Providing furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty, Bridging gives hope–and for many–a leap toward financial stability for the first time. With locations in Bloomington and Roseville, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of furniture and household goods from the community. Since 1987, Bridging has furnished over 60,000 homes and reduced landfill space by more than 128 million pounds. To learn more and get involved visit www.bridging.org.

Many organizations join SUBWAY® Restaurants and contribute toward the success of the SUBWAY ® Bring a Blanket: FedEx ®, KARE 11 TV, Edinborough Park and KDWB/101.3 FM.
