Once upon a time, there was a nonprofit named Blue Star Families, founded by military families for military families. Every year, Blue Star Families would hear peers say, “We’re isolated and lonely” because of the efforts needed to support the homefront — like moving every one to three years.
Because of Blue Star Families’ Military Family Lifestyle Survey, the organization learned that frequent moves were causing American military families to lack connections and resources within their local communities. Therefore, families really struggled to feel like they “belonged” to the places where they lived, which negatively impacts their overall wellness and significantly strains our All-Volunteer Force.
When Schlotzsky’s learned this, they raised their hand to help by donating $50,000 to Blue Star Families as part of its new Hometown Heart program! This partnership enables Blue Star Families to continue to provide complimentary programs, resources, and events to thousands of military families, ensuring they can always feel connected and supported in every community across the nation and around the globe. Thus, empowering them to thrive — not just survive — while serving our country alongside their service members.
Together, Schlotzsky’s and Blue Star Families are teaming up to kickstart our efforts during Blue Star Welcome Week, a nationwide campaign created to forge strong connections between military family members and their local neighbors, by hosting “Family Day” at all Schlotzsky’s locations on Thursday, September 29th.
You’re invited in-store to enjoy a FREE Kids Meal with purchase of an adult entree, where you’ll have an opportunity to meet your local neighbors — civilian and military. Plus, use the app code “MILITARY22” and get a small sandwich for $1.99 (which is available now through October 31st.) Both exclusive offers are available to Rewards Members via the Schlotzsky’s app. Terms and conditions apply*.
