These envelopes will contain a variety of prizes including concert tickets, movie passes, or SUBWAY® gift cards. Additional information can be found at K102.com/blankets.
WHEN: Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

WHY: Bridging distributes thousands of beds annually, but are always short of blankets to accompany them. The annual SUBWAY® Bring a Blanket Collection is the primary means of securing blankets to keep 14,000 people warm this year so they can get a good nights’ sleep.
The SUBWAY® Bring a Blanket Collection was developed in 2002 by local SUBWAY® restaurants. To date, the SUBWAY® Bring A Blanket Collection has secured more than 76,000 blankets to redistribute to people in need.
