TRUSSVILLE – Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 1,500 locations open and under development nationwide, believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same. Now, Children’s of Alabama is joining forces with three
Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants in the Birmingham area for the 6th Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to Children’s of Alabama at any area Jersey Mike’s restaurant.
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 30, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales – every single dollar that comes in – to Children’s of Alabama.
In Trussville, Jersey Mike’s is located at 1873 Gadsden Hwy in the Heritage Center, next to Tire Engineers.
Across the country on Day of Giving, Jersey Mike’s locations will donate 100 percent of sales to more than 180 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
“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 – goes to help a great local cause,” 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 $3 million for 150 different charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $14 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
