Which Wich® Superior Sandwiches Begins 10th Annual Flag Your Bag Campaign
At Which Wich® Superior Sandwiches, we believe in giving back to our community, and that includes supporting those who have supported and served our country in the military. And for that reason we’re proud to hold our 10th Annual “Flag Your Bag” campaign in an effort to provide both our veterans and active duty personnel with non-perishable goods.
Beginning on May 28th and continuing through July 4th, 2018, all Which Wich fast casual sandwich shops will be encouraging their guests to write messages of support and gratitude on the brand’s signature brown sandwich bags, including patriotic art with red white and blue sharpies. Bags collected at locations around the country will be collected and sent to the franchise’s headquarters in Dallas where they will be filled with donations and sent to both active and veteran U.S. military service members.
This year’s effort seeks to be the biggest yet, collecting more than 25,000 bags to put the total collected at more than 100,000 since starting our campaign more than 10 years ago.
Which Wich® Founder, CEO, and Chief Vibe Officer Jeff Sinelli stated: “This is a time of year when we reflect on the liberties and freedoms that we all enjoy and want to say thank you for the dedication and sacrifice of our armed services. They give so much to us and we are proud to give back to them with our Flag Your Bag campaign for a tenth year.”
Department of Defense statistics indicate that there are 1.3 million current, active-duty military personnel, 742,000 civilian personnel, and 826,000 National Guard and Reserve forces, for a total of just short of three million people currently serving in a military capacity, with millions more who have served previously and hold the status of “veteran.”
One such veteran is our Director of Construction, David Thompson, who served in the Marine Corps, even playing a vital role in the liberation of Kuwait in the Gulf War. He stated: “For active duty military who are overseas, it can often feel like you are out of sight and out of mind. When I was overseas, getting a letter from a student in elementary school or a mother who lost her son and wanted to show her support meant the world. Active duty military members sometimes go weeks without getting any mail, so a care package with a few goodies goes a long way. The Flag Your Bag program makes a huge impact on people serving overseas because getting something from back home reassures you that others are behind you and supporting you.”
He added “As a veteran, it means the world to me to help our troops.”
