March is Month of Giving at Jersey Mike’s Subs
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 9th 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. Our local Jersey Mike’s locations (Bearden, University Commons, Sevierville, and Oak Ridge) have all chosen the YMCA of East Tennessee’s Annual Campaign, which allows the Y to give scholarships for Y programs to those in our community who need us the most.
Day of Giving – Wednesday, March 27
Jersey Mike’s campaign culminates in the nationwide event, Day of Giving, on Wednesday, March 27, 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,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old.
The Y, too, would like to invite you to support our Annual Campaign by visiting a Jersey Mike’s Subs location on Wednesday, March 27. Last year, Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving raised $12,696 for our Y’s Annual Campaign. Every dollar you spend will come back to the Y’s Annual Campaign, and will support the work we are able to do in our community.
