Subway to sell subs for Katrina relief on Sunday

On Sunday, Oct. 23, Subway franchisees across the nation will donate 5 percent of the day's sales to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. This fund provides shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to victims of disasters across the country each year.

The Subway in Thomson, located at 320 W Hill Street in the IGA shopping center, will participate in the donation drive.

"I think it's great; we've all got to help each other out. And that's one of the ways we can help, so I'm glad to be a part of it," said Scott Campbell, owner of the Thomson restaurant.

The date coincides with the Subway 500 race in Martinsville, Va. The Subway 16 Ford car, driven by Greg Biffle, will display the American Red Cross logo on its hood, along with the Subway logo, to raise consumer awareness about the disaster relief fund.

Mr. Campbell said Sunday is "an average day" for sales, but "hopefully customers who usually come in during the week will come in on that Sunday" to increase sales for the relief effort.

"You're talking about 19,000 stores, and that's a lot of money. I can't imagine how much that's going to be. I'm glad Subway is doing it," Mr. Campbell said.

Mr. Campbell owns two Subway franchises - one in Thomson and one in Sandersville.
