Do something to help out your neighbors.
Order a hoagie.
Today, the Lee’s Hoagie Houses in Abington and Horsham will donate 10 percent of their sales to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Owner Jon Waxman said he’s in the process of deciding which charity will get his attention, but added that he’d like to keep it local.
“My marketing person and I are working on that tonight – it's been a hectic week,” Waxman said. “We’ll probably donate to one charity. Keeping it local is probably the way to go, but we have to investigate where the money’s needed the most.”
Waxman said he’s worked with a lot of different charities over the years. He noted that his business is participating in a 5K in December to benefit the Horsham Parks and Rec. Department.
A Cheltenham High School graduate (Class of 1983), Waxman has worked at the Lee’s Hoagie House in Abington for 30 years, and has owned it for 22 years; he’s owned the location in Horsham for five years.
“People are struggling right now,” Waxman said. “Growing up in Cheltenham, and seeing what people are going through right now … it’s just kind of cool to be able to give back. So the more people who come in, the more money we can donate.”
The Lee’s Hoagie Houses will be open today from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m.
