Make-A-Wish New Jersey has joined forces with 60 Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout North, Central and Coastal New Jersey for the 8th Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. Throughout the month, generous customers have been making donations to Make-A-Wish New Jersey at Jersey Mike’s restaurants.
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 28, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to the partner charities.
On Day of Giving, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the country will donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in to more than 170 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
In 2017, the New Jersey area Jersey Mike’s locations raised $263,000 for Make-A-Wish New Jersey during the campaign, resulting in more than 25 wishes granted to local children with critical illnesses.
“I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your family to visit Jersey Mike’s Subs throughout the month, 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.
Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised more than $5.5 million for local charities nationwide. An astounding $4.6 million of that amount was raised on Day of Giving alone. 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.
