Carolina Spotlight: Sandwich chain helps Autism cause

Originally Published at Carolina Live by Joel Allen

A sub sandwich chain is teaming up with Horry County to help find and rescue missing children.

April is Autism Awareness Month, and Jersey Mike's subs will donate some of their proceeds this month to purchase radio transmitting wristbands that can track missing autistic children.

"We're going to be donating a portion of our sales of our number 7 turkey sub for the whole month of April, up until the 25th, when we're going to be having a jamboree here at the store," said Billy Zevgolis, Jersey Mike's.

Jersey Mike's four stores on the Grand Strand will be involved.

It's part of Horry County's Project Lifesaver program, which also helps track people with Alzheimer's disease and Down Syndrome.
