Every time you choose Philly's, you are making a difference in our community.
THANK YOU for your participation and involvement in our efforts to make a difference!
Here are a few of the highlights of what we have been up to in the community.
Philly's participated in collecting your change for the the WDEZ BS & Vanessa's Change Challenge. Vanessa's goal was to collect 1 million pennies, while Bryan thought collecting 40,000 quarters would be easier. In the end, the kids won collecting $55.79 @ Philly's! But for the record, BS did collect more at $35.72 to Vanessa's $20.07.
THANK YOU to everyone who participated.
This year Steph & Jeff and their families decided to skip the holiday gifts, and instead spread love and cheer with a local nursing home. The kids spent the weekend constructing reindeer ornaments to give to the residents of Wausau Manor during a surprise visit. In addition to visiting with the residents and singing holiday songs, they delivered Philly's 15 pc. party platters for the employees of Wausau Manor in appreciation to their dedication to the residents and hours put in during the holidays.
Though their were no gifts under their tree, in fact no tree at all, Steph says; "I couldn't have had a better holiday, or better kids, I am so proud of each of them. The quality time we spent together during their holiday break playing games, making crafts, and seeing our "giving elf" project through beats any hustle and bustle of your normal holiday traditions & festivities."
During our Grand Opening we chose to support the Boys & Girls Club of the Wausau Area by collecting items from their Unmet Needs Program. We asked our guests to bring in an item or cash donation in which they received a $25 coupon sheet to be used at Phillys. We were able to collect many hygiene supplies, clothes, and school supplies for the kids at the club. Thank-you to all of you that participated, and a special thank-you to Wausau's Bath & Body Works who donated many of the hygiene supplies as well as some fun items.
Philly’s Subs and Gyros sponsored a Co-Ed Softball Team that plays through Mosinee Softball League.
Philly’s Subs and Gyros is a small locally owned business, not a franchise. We understand the importance of supporting fellow small businesses in our area.
We have created this Featured Business Board to showcase some of the small business in our area that you can support to make a big difference.
Throughout the year we donate raffle prizes like gift cards and t-shirts to organizations raising money to help those in our community. Here is a highlight of some of the places we have donated to. We wanted to highlight the ones who sent Thank-You cards because Philly's along with the help of our wonderful guests make these donations possible!
Philly's donated to Krista's reunion with her "hero" including a t-shirt, free subs, and a personal letter to Eric in appreciation for his heroic actions. We are very passionate about giving and are so thankful for his actions in Krista's time of need. We hope that their story and Eric's selfless act will inspire people to do the same.
Our mission with this project is to help start or grow the personal libraries of children in our community one classroom at a time. Many children do not have a personal library at home or have outgrown it like they do their shoes. With the help of our generous guests, we have been able to donate over 1000 books!
Philly's along with the help of our wonderful guests collected items needed for the Humane Society of Marathon County. Together we were able to help the animals who did not have a forever home during the holiday season.
Jeff & Steph volunteered at the "BOWL LIKE A ROCK STAR" event for Big Brothers Big Sisters at Dales Weston Lanes. Jeff worked selling raffle tickets for the Taste of Wausau raffle basket, while Steph worked as a Personal Lane Server. Prizes were also donated from Philly's for the raffle.
We were selected by BBT trivia team to sponsor their team for the 2018 World's Largest Trivia Contest where they competed around the clock for an entire weekend! Philly's was able to facilitate their meals and provide logo wear for their team. It was a neat experience for us despite the Blizzard that took place the entire weekend.
Philly’s Subs and Gyros sponsored a Co-Ed Softball Team that plays at Sunnyvale Park on Thursdays. They won their way to the top to become #1 and won the championship! Congrats to the team!
Philly's believes that no matter the dream anything is possible. We are very excited to have been given the opportunity to be a sponsor in the making of this record for this local musician. Please support Scotty K's music by purchasing a copy of "Demons" available at Innersleeve Records or www.cdbaby.com/cd/scottyk2
Philly’s Subs and Gyros donated the pumpkins for a Girl Scout Troop's Pumpkin activity.
