The WiSH Education Foundation funds programs and initiatives not paid for by tax dollars alone, according to their website. Their goal is to “benefit as many students with our dollars as possible, directly in the classroom, where it’s needed the most.”
The owners of the newest Jersey Mike’s on 24453 Magic Mountain Pkwy. in Santa Clarita, Kyanna Isaacson and Steve Youlios, offered free subs to customers with a minimum donation to the foundation when the restaurant opened.
With the help of the community, all funds raised during the grand opening are now going towards upgrading books and technology in all Hart District libraries.
The Hart school district serves nearly 23,000 students in grades 7-12 in the Santa Clarita Valley.
WiSH is also a recent beneficiary of the SCV Charity Chili Cook Off in March at the Wolf Creek Brewery.
WiSH’s goal is to raise $100,000 for the libraries of the Hart district, according to officials.
Those who wish to help the foundation reach their goal can visit their website here to make a donation of any amount.
Donations of more than $100 will be honored on a plaque dedicated to the libraries of the Hart district, according to a news release.
