Forward Corp. announced today it will donate a portion of October sales at its Freeland Subway to the Freeland PTO to assist in its fundraising efforts.

Beginning Saturday, Oct 2, Forward will donate 10 percent of Saturday and Sunday sales to the organization to help support various initiatives.

“The Freeland community and the school district have been so supportive of this location over the years that we felt it would be a great opportunity for us to give back,” said Andrew Brown, Forward’s District Manager in charge of its Subway division.

In total there are five weekends the fundraiser is taking place: Oct 2/3, Oct 9/10, Oct 16/17, Oct 23/24, and Oct 30/31. Customers do not need to keep receipts for proof of purchase or provide coupons or any other sort of material to trigger the donation. Forward will just donate 10% of Saturday and Sunday sales for October after the conclusion of the month.

The Freeland PTO funds a variety of initiatives and recently funded water bottle filling stations, alternative seating, subscriptions for Scholastic News for first graders and appreciation gift cards for staff. The organization is currently eyeing playground upgrades with future funding.
