East Peoria - Easter Seals is getting a helpful hand from a popular restaurant.

Jersey Mike's in East Peoria raised more than $6,500 during the month of March.

During Jersey Mike's "Month of Giving" customers could make a donation to Easter Seals when they checked out.

The campaign spiked on March 26th, when the sandwich joint donated 100% of its sales to Easter Seals.

"I think it's important if you want to serve in a community that you do some giving back as well,” said Jersey Mike's Manager G Abu Saba. “So the fact that we are able to provide a service and have some fun and give back to a great cause, that's extremely rewarding."

Jersey Mike's contributes to a variety of charities across the nation.
