Jersey Mike’s Subs Conducts Autism Awareness Fundraiser

Originally Published at SCNow.com by Elizabeth Holland

Both kids and adults came out to the Conway Jersey Mike's restaurant to help promote autismawareness and have a little fun.

April is autism awareness month.

To celebrate the last day, the restaurant teamed up with the Autism Advocate Foundation to host a jamboree.

Kids enjoyed games, face painting, and inflatable toys.  

For every turkey sub sold, Jersey Mike's donated $1.00 to Horry County Project Lifesaver.

The group works to provide tracking wrist bands to autistic children.

"[Austistic children] tend to wander and they're non verbal. It's a wonderful program that's given a lot of our families in the area a sense of security to have this project lifesaver bracelet,” said Monique Clement, an administrator for theAutism Advocate Foundation.

The foundation will continue to collect donations all year through their website, www.autismadvocatefoundation.com.
