Jersey Mike's on East State Street took part in the sandwich chain's nationwide day of giving last week.
Every year the location donates money raised to local organizations to help those in need. This year the store raised $11,500 dollars during the campaign. All that money was donated to Rockford's Literacy Council.
The Literacy Council is a non-profit organization that offers language programs and computer classes.
The chain as a whole raised more than 6 million dollars for it's annual day of giving.
