RARITAN, NJ - Raritan's “Jersey Mike’ Subs” Franchise Owner, Joe Williams, proudly presented the Bridgewater-Raritan Band Parent Association with a check for $2,312 on June 15.
To raise the money, the Raritan store donated 10 percent of all proceeds during the week of May 13 to 19.
“Every year, Jersey Mike’s has a nationwide month of giving, but we wanted to give back locally,” said Williams. “It has been a positive event sharing the Jersey Mike’s experience with the Bridgewater-Raritan Community and we look forward to doing this fundraiser again next year!”
