EAT A SUB: HELP RELAY FOR LIFE: Jersey Mike’s Kicks off 9th Annual “Month of Giving” in March
GREENSBORO, N.C., Feb. 21, 2019 – Relay for Life is joining forces with 14 Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the Piedmont Triad area for the 9th Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to fund local charities. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to Relay for Life at participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants.
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to Relay for Life.
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 180 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
“Last year’s nationwide Month of Giving initiative raised more than $6 million for charities making a big difference in their local communities, and this year, we hope to raise even more,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years-old. “From the early days, it’s just what we’ve always done — give to give, as they say. This March, I invite you to visit Jersey Mike’s to help support an important cause in your neighborhood.”
Director, Community Development in the Triad area, Jami Myers said, “Again this year we look forward to working with the generous partners at Jersey Mike’s. Money raised in our community will help the American Cancer Society Relay For Life program support lifesaving cancer research, and help support patient services in our area like giving patients free rides to treatments, providing complimentary lodging, and supporting our 24/7 cancer helpline. Every donation helps us get closer to realizing a cancer free world.”
