Children’s Trust and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are joining forces with Jersey Mike’s Subs at 2010 Electric Rd. for the 9th Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to fund local charities. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to CASA at Jersey Mike’s. The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27, when Jersey Mike’s restaurant will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to CASA of Roanoke Valley.
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 170 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 kind of 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.”
Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised more than $6 million for 170 local charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $34 million for local charities and distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
