THANK YOU!!! As of April 18th, we've raised over $8500 and are well over 3,500 sandwiches to be donated and delivered, of which over 2000 have been delivered already!
Please support the great folks at the Subway sandwich shop at 12155 Lioness Way in Parker who matched every sandwich donation, so that instead of $5 buying one sandwich for our health care workers and first responders, it bought two! And thanks again to our morning show listeners and partners for their generous contributions.
I've taken the opportunity to deliver over 400 sandwiches to hospitals and fire stations.
The first two pics below are of the great couple who own the Subway shop (Roy is at Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree), and the last pic is me at Rose Medical Center in Denver.
[Update: Thanks to L&L Heating and Air Conditioning for providing another $500 match, and to another of my morning show partners who doesn't want to be recognized publicly for his valuable contribution.]
[Update: Let's keep it going!!! Todd Maul, Managing Partner of the Elway Auto Dealers will match the next $500 of contributions to this effort, and Kurt Cambier of Centennial Capital Partners will manage the $500 after that! And thanks so much to Buehler Moving and Storage for contributing $500 as well, which will itself be matched!]
[Update: On Thursday, 50 sandwiches were delivered to Sky Ridge Medical Center Emergency Room...and then a flood of donations came in so over the next few days we will be delivering OVER 500 sandwiches to medical workers around the Denver area.]
[Previous UPDATE: FOR WEDS APRIL 1 AND THURS APRIL 2, I WILL PERSONALLY MATCH, UP TO $400 OUT OF MY OWN POCKET, DONATIONS TO HELP FEED OUR OVERWORKED HEALTH CARE WORKERS. SO IF YOU BUY ONE SANDWICH FOR DONATION TO SKY RIDGE MEDICAL CENTER'S EMERGENCY ROOM, THERE WILL BE FOUR, YES FOUR, SANDWICHES DELIVERED TO THEM!!!]
One of my listeners and his wife own the Subway at 12155 Lioness Way in Parker, CO. They got in touch with me with a great offer that I hope a lot of you will help with.
Whether you go to the store or call the store (preferred), if you buy a sandwich to be donated to health care workers, they will match your sandwich donation with a second sandwich. In other words, you donate a sandwich, and those people who are working so hard every day to take care of our fellow Coloradans will get two sandwiches. (And you have the added benefit of helping to keep a local small business open and their workers getting paychecks...it's like two gifts in one.)
The store is open 8 AM to 8 PM every day. Here are the ways you can contact them...again phone is preferred for obvious reasons.
Also, if you know a place not too far from Parker where folks are working hard to keep the rest of us healthy and safe, and whose workers might enjoy getting some free Subway subs, please call the store or just email me with your suggestion. I'm at ross (at) khow (dot) com.
