Jimmy John’s is the Official Sandwich Delivery Partner of WWTR. On April 23, WWTR and Domino’s delivered 100 pizzas to SSM Health St. Louis University Hospital.

“We are continuing to express our gratitude to the doctors, nurses and all of the medical personnel who are working ‘round the clock during this health emergency,” said WWTR Owner and CEO Curtis Francois. “It is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for their selfless efforts and sacrifices.”

“Granite City Jimmy John’s is proud to partner with WWTR to provide food for the staff at Gateway Regional Medical Center,” said Steve Levey, owner of Jimmy John’s Granite City. “We sincerely appreciate everything they do for the community – not only during this health emergency but every day.”
