Donate to Boys and Girls Clubs today by eating at Jersey Mike's
By eating out at Jersey Mike's Subs restaurant Wednesday, you will be donating 100% of your money to help East Texas children participate in summer camp this year.
Jersey Mike's Subs is hosting their 3rd annual, "Month of Giving", fundraising campaign. Wednesday is the one "Day of Giving" where all the money in sales will be donated.
Jersey Mike's Subs Marketing Director in East Texas, Kyle Jones says Tyler locations have selected the Boys and Girls Club of East Texas to sponsor.
"We just want to help the kids as much as possible throughout with their education and their safety and well-being. So it's just an overall good experience at Boys and Girls Club of East Texas," says Jones.
The Boys and Girls Club offers after school care at 12 different elementary schools. They also offer several summer camps and programs.
"We picked them because of the local mentorship that they do provide the kids throughout East Texas and it will be something nice to give back to the kids," says Jones.
President of Boys and Girls Club of East Texas, Kevin East says the money raised Wednesday will go towards the scholarship program that will help families send their kids to summer camp.
"For them to say you know what for a whole day whatever they sell they're going to donate to help kids come to camp here this summer we are so appreciative. It's going to mean a lot for a lot of kids who get to come here during the summer time because of the scholarship money people are providing Wednesday," says East.
Jones asks East Texans to help the national chain raise money and make their goal of raising over a million dollars.
You can visit the Tyler Jersey Mike's Subs off Broadway and Beckham. In Longview you can go to the locations off Gilmer Road and North Fourth Street.
