Jersey Mike's Month of Giving Supports Children's of Alabama in March
BIRMINGHAM – Children’s of Alabama, a Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital, is joining forces with Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants in Alabama for the Sixth Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. During the month of March, customers can make a donation at their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant with proceeds benefitting the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s.
All 31 days of March, customers can give in the following ways:
• Make a donation at a Birmingham area or Opelika store and receive a future-use coupon.
• Make a donation through the fundraising page on the Children’s website.
• Redeem a specially marked coupon in store resulting in a Jersey Mike’s Subs donation for each coupon redeemed.
• Have Jersey Mike’s Subs cater your next meeting, event or party. Twenty-five percent of all catering orders will be donated.
• Buy a T-shirt (which includes offsetting cost coupons) with all proceeds going to Children’s.
• Bid on amazing trips, experiences and items in our online auction.
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
Throughout 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.
Everyone is invited to come in to a local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and enjoy a delicious sub meal. Participating restaurants include:
• Hoover (1851 Montgomery Hwy.)
• Mountain Brook (3150 Overton Road)
• Opelika (2336 Tiger Town Pkwy.)
• Trussville (1873 Gadsden Hwy.)
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.
