EMERYVILLE, Calif., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jamba Juice, a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand with a vision to "inspire and simplify healthy living," proudly announced today its commitment to raise funds and generate awareness for the American Heart Association (AHA) for the fourth consecutive year. Building off a successful history of supporting the AHA's mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke, Jamba is again working to support the efforts of the AHA in 2016.
From February 1-19, Jamba stores nationwide will raise funds for the AHA through a customer donation campaign.

Jamba Juice is helping fund research, education, advocacy and community outreach programs through the American Heart Association – the country's oldest and largest voluntary health organization – to make a difference in our communities.
In addition to the in-store fundraising, Jamba franchisees will partner with local AHA chapters in sponsoring local events in various Jamba markets. "I am pleased that, once again, our franchisees are stepping up to support the important work that the American Heart Association is doing to help families make healthier nutrition and lifestyle choices," said Julie S.
