TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Subway donated 200 sandwiches to the Twin Falls Senior Center Thursday to assist with their homebound meals.
The sandwiches were taken to the seniors who are part of the Meals on Wheels program.
Senior Center Director Jeanette Roe said the sandwiches went to the seniors at home because they don't normally get to go to the restaurant.
"This is our first year doing this and we just thought we needed to reach out to an entity that needed a little bit of help and do a charitable thing," said Julie Emery, the senior area manager for Subway.
For the whole month of September, Subways in town will give customers the option to make a donation to the Twin Falls Senior Center.
"We're really, really excited about it. Last year they estimated that they raised about $1,500 for local charities so we're really excited that this is coming and we're grateful for them to do it," Roe said.
All funds will go toward the senior center and assist in providing meals.
Roe said they hit a record in number of meals served in August at 7,327 meals in total.
