Residents across the region will have the chance to enjoy a sandwich and help a local charity Wednesday.
All Inland Empire area Jersey Mike’s stores will donate 100 percent of its sales March 27 to Steven’s Hope for Children, a charity that helps families with temporary housing when a child is hospitalized during a severe illness or injury, often times working with families at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital.
