SAN FRANCISCO — SUBWAY® restaurants in the San Francisco and Sacramento area have joined forces with California State Parks Foundation (CSPF) to give back to the local community. From April 15 to August 31, 2015, more than 850 local SUBWAY® restaurants will participate in the “You Share. We Share.” campaign to help support CSPF.
The “You Share. We Share.” campaign encourages the community to get out and share their weekends with SUBWAY® restaurants, and SUBWAY® restaurants will share right back by donating a percentage of weekend sales, up to $100,000, directly to CSPF. As locally owned and operated franchises, SUBWAY® restaurants are excited to be able to further their commitment to the local community.
“Over the past several years, we at CSPF have worked closely with community partners throughout the state to help parks survive and even thrive in the face of challenging budget and resource reductions,” said CSPF President Elizabeth Goldstein. “We have exciting plans for the future of our state parks and are grateful to SUBWAY® restaurants for helping us achieve our vision.”
For over 45 years, CSPF has worked hard to ensure that California has the best state parks system in the world by building a diverse membership community of passionate park advocates, raising funds to support and protect state parks, mobilizing volunteers to work on behalf of parks, advocating for adequate funding and sound stewardship policies for parks, and facilitating educational programs, habitat restoration, land acquisition, and capital improvements in state parks.
The San Francisco and Sacramento regions are home to more than 80 state parks that not only serve local residents with rich opportunities for exercise, recreation, and education, but also provide jobs for community members and generate significant economic activity for local businesses that serve park visitors. Each year, over 18 million visitors of all ages visit these parks to improve their health, well-being, and knowledge.
Through the “You Share. We Share.” campaign, SUBWAY® restaurants will positively impact millions of people today and for years to come by promoting healthy and active lifestyles, protecting the environment, and supporting CSPF programs that benefit state parks and their visitors.
