Massive Hoagie Sale Set for Super Bowl Sunday in Washington Township

Posted:
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – This year's Washington Township Annual Helping Hands Hoagie Sale will feature T-shirts the participants wear to help promote the event.
The Washington Township Education Foundation (WTEF) donated $1,500 to provide 300 T-shirts for the students and staff taking part in the fundraising event.
Washington Township High School sophomore Rylee Demonteverde designed the shirts for this year's 21st anniversary of the event, which benefits local families in need.
The massive hoagie sale is hosted each Super Bowl Sunday, which falls on February 7 in 2016.
“The Education Foundation is extremely pleased to play a financial role in this year’s Helping Hands Hoagie Sale,” said WTEF President Charlie Doud. “We feel the sale is an extremely important educational opportunity for all the students involved, as they learn that community service directed at those less fortunate is a life lesson you simply cannot master from a book.”
The WTHS Changing Our World (COW) project, members of the township's three middle-school Future Acts clubs, and student-athletes from the high schools, will join other community volunteers in making and selling the sandwiches.
The proceeds from the fundraising event will help local families facing serious medical situations.
In 2015, more than $53,000 was raised for 26 families facing medical setbacks and expenses.
