Jersey Mike's Subs raised almost $2,000 for St. Mary's Community Center, the community outreach project at St. Joseph's/Candler Hospital.
To celebrate its new store opening in December at 7400 Abercorn St., the store held a five day fundraiser.
The Center is located in the Cuyler-Brownsville neighborhood, a struggling African-American community with a strong community spirit, and a rich background. The Center serves many individuals and families from Savannah's poorest areas.
Ryan Delman of Jersey Mike's Subs said, "It was a great learning experience seeing what gets achieved at St. Mary's and we were really happy to be able to contribute to the great work of Sister Pat and all the volunteers."
