Hoping to raise a record high for charity this March, Jersey Mikes Subs is asking customers to eat a submarine and help out a local cause.
To celebrate the 10th milestone in the company’s fundraiser, Jersey Mike locations across the country are partnering with 200 local charities.
In March, everyone is invited to come to their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and make a donation to the site’s designated charity. Charities include hospitals, youth organizations, food banks, and more. As an added incentive, special offers will be announced each week on Twitter and through the Jersey Mike email club.
The campaign culminates in the nationwide Day of Giving event on Wednesday March 25th, where Jersey Mike owners and operators donate their resources and every single dollar that goes to local charities.
At the time of the first statewide fundraiser in 2011, all 454 Jersey Mike locations raised $ 600,000 for 66 charities. Last year’s month of giving raised a record more than $ 7.3 million for local charities nationwide, and in 2020 the company’s 1,700 locations hope to raise more than $ 8 million.
