This March, Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its authentic fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, asks customers to eat a sub and help a local charity.
More than 1,360 Jersey Mike’s locations across the country are joining forces with more than 170 local charities for the company’s 8th Annual Month of Giving fundraising campaign. Last year’s Month of Giving raised more than $5.5 million for local charities nationwide, and this year Jersey Mike’s wants to break last year’s record-setting total.
During the month of March, all are invited to come into their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and make a donation to the location’s designated charity partner. Charities include hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more. As added incentive, special offers will be announced each week through Jersey Mike’s email club and on social media.
The campaign culminates in the nationwide event, Day of Giving, on Wednesday, March 28, when local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators will donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in to local charities.
“I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your family to visit Jersey Mike’s Subs throughout the month of March, and especially on Day of Giving when 100 percent of sales—every penny—will help support neighborhood needs,” says Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old.
In each market, restaurant owners selected charities that make a big difference when it comes to supporting local neighborhoods and building a stronger community.
“Giving … making a difference in someone’s life” has been the mission of Jersey Mike’s from the beginning. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $28 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
