Veolia, Subway partner to help those in need

Veolia Transportation, provider of quality bus service to the City of Phoenix, and Subway Restaurants of Arizona, are asking residents from across the Valley to join them in “stuffing a bus” for those in need this holiday season. On three consecutive Fridays, Veolia Transportation and the City of Phoenix will park a festive holiday-themed bus at one Subway location across the Valley, and are asking members of the community to come donate toys, clothing and other household items to benefit families and children in need this Winter.

To thank each member of our community for the donation, Subway will present each person who gives with a special coupon entitling him/her to buy any six-inch sandwich and get a second six-inch sandwich for free. In addition, Subway has teamed up with Otis Spunkmeyer and Shamrock Farms to offer all those who come out to support the events free cookies and milk.

The first of the three community events will take place at Subway Restaurant located at 4326 E. Cactus Road in Phoenix – just west of Tatum on Cactus – from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Everyone in the community is invited to join in the festive giving opportunity.

“Members of our organization will also be on hand to graciously accept any type of cash donation, which will go directly to helping the many children in this community who need us this holiday season,” said Laura Capello of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona.

“Veolia Transportation has a long history of serving the Phoenix community. This Stuff A Bus project is a great way for us to support the community and to say thank you to community residents,” said Barrick Neill, of Veolia Transportation.
