MANASQUAN, N.J., Feb. 25, 2020 – Make-A-Wish New Jersey is joining forces with 82 Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the state for the 10th Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign. During the month of March, customers can make a donation at participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants.
Additional New Jersey locations are supporting the following charities:
Alex’s Lemonade Stand (Jersey Mike’s in Hamilton Square + 17 in Pennsylvania)
Hugs for Brady (Princeton)
Ryan’s Quest (Hamilton)
Sean’s Pals benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (West Orange)
Steps Together (Hillsborough)
Westfield YMCA (Westfield)
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 25, when local Jersey Mike’s locations 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 200 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
In 2019, Jersey Mike’s locations in New Jersey raised more than $500,000 for local charities during the campaign.
“This March, we celebrate our 10th Annual Month of Giving, an idea inspired by one of our local franchise owners,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old. “Since then, we have raised more than $31 million with the support of our generous local owners, crew members and customers. This March, I invite you to come in and celebrate this milestone with us, and make a difference in your community.”
