Jamba Juice Teams Up with the Salem Market to Inspire Students to Stay Active and Healthy

Jamba “Teams Up For a Healthy America” with DonorsChoose.org to
fund Local Schools’ Health and Projects

EMERYVILLE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Continuing its longtime dedication to the local community, leading
health and active lifestyle brand, Jamba Juice in the Salem market
announced today a campaign to help area students. Today, Salem Jamba
stores will donate 20 percent of sales to supply local schools with
fitness and athletic equipment, and other tools to help area youth stay
active and healthy through Jamba’s Team Up for a Healthy America™
initiative. The funding will also help with other educational projects
to benefit local students.

Launched in 2011, Team Up for a Healthy America is one of Jamba’s
marquee corporate social responsibility programs, designed to improve
childhood wellness by encouraging and inspiring kids to make better
dietary choices and keep active.

To support this charitable initiative, Jamba Juice and Team Up for a
Healthy America have partnered with DonorsChoose.org, a non-profit
website that makes it easy for anyone to help public school students and
teachers in need.

Today, Jamba Juice made an initial donation of more than $7,500 to
DonorsChoose.org to fund 15 projects in the Salem market, reaching ten
schools and 3,147 students. Additionally, Jamba will donate 20 percent
of sales in participating Salem area stores to fund additional projects
at local schools, allowing the community to play a key part in this
important program.

Through DonorsChoose.org, public school teachers from every corner of
America submit classroom project requests, and individuals and
organizations can give directly to the ones that inspire them. The
projects that DonorsChoose.org fund range from athletic gear, to science
equipment, books, art supplies and anything that helps students receive
an excellent education. Since 2011, Jamba and DonorsChoose.org have
teamed up to provide athletic and play equipment to schools to keep kids
active across America and have impacted more than 100,000 school
children.

“Jamba Juice is a firm believer in staying active, and it’s exciting to
be part of this special program to help public schools fulfill dreams,”
said Ron Elton, C42B Inc., Jamba Juice franchise partner in the Salem
market. “As the new school year is ushered in, it seems like a perfect
time to participate in the flash funding program through
DonorsChoose.org, and to help students reach their full potential, and
support the power and passion each teacher provides students.”

In addition to Jamba’s Team Up for a Healthy America program, Jamba
offers two year-round opportunities for local schools and other
nonprofits to fundraise the FUN way through their local Jamba store.
First, Jamba offers fundraising cards with “buy-one, get-one free”
offers that schools can sell and get 50 percent of the funds back, and
second Jamba can sell smoothies at local events and donate up to 20
percent of the sales to local schools or charities. To learn more about
these program, speak to your local Jamba store manager or visit http://www.jambajuice.com/more-jamba/fundraising.
