Enjoy a Free Sub and Help a Teacher

What if every time you ate a sandwich you were helping a teacher bring innovative learning programs to his or her students?

You can by purchasing a $10 Sub Saver card good at local Subway restaurants throughout Georgia. You get 32 coupons for a free six-inch sub with the purchase of a six-inch sub and a medium drink. That’s like getting a foot-long for half the price, and a savings of over $100. With every card purchased, the Fayette County Education Foundation will receive $5 to apply toward funding classroom projects and programs.

Students across the county have benefitted from programs that their teachers have envisioned and were able to implement with the help of the Fayette County Education Foundation. Math has made more sense, chemistry has become more interesting, and history has been brought to life thanks to the imaginations of teachers and financial help from the foundation.

Every year Fayette’s public school teachers apply to receive money from the Fayette County Education Foundation for educational programs that otherwise would go unfunded. The foundation depends on community donations and other fundraising activities to collect the monies needed to fund teacher-driven programs. The foundation has given nearly $180,000 to Fayette’s public classroom teachers during its eight-year history.

Teachers will begin making their funding requests next month, and the foundation needs donor support to make their ideas a reality. Cards can be purchased at the Fayette County Board of Education located at 210 Stonewall Avenue in Fayetteville during regular business hours, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

The Fayette County Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization and is a cooperative effort between the school system and the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce. For more information about the foundation or the Sub Saver cards, contact Melinda Berry-Dreisbach, public information specialist for Fayette County Schools, 770-460-3535.
