Owners of the newest Jersey Mike’s in Santa Clarita raised nearly $10,000 for the William S. Hart Union High School District libraries, which serve nearly 23,000 students in grades 7-12 in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Kyanna Isaacson and Steve Youlios, who own the Jersey Mike’s in the Target shopping center, offered free sub sandwiches with a minimum donation to WiSH during the first days of the store’s opening. The community came out in record numbers, with lines out the door that moved very quickly, according to reports.
All of the funds raised during the grand opening will go towards upgrading both hard copy books and technology in all Hart District libraries. The goal, according to WiSH leadership, is to raise $100,000 for the libraries. Community members may offer donations by going to the website, www.WiSHscv.org. Donors in excess of $100 will be honored on a plaque dedicated to the libraries.
WiSH supports programs and initiatives in the Hart District that are not funded by tax dollars alone. For more information, contact executive director Amy Daniels at firstname.lastname@example.org.
