Eat A Sub and Help Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island Grant Wishes
Jersey Mike’s Kicks off 8th Annual “Month of Giving” in March
BOSTON, Mar. 1, 2018 – Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island is partnering with select Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants in Massachusetts for the 8th Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to help grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
During the month of March, customers can make a donation to Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island at the Beverly (55 Dodge St.), Marlborough (42 Boston Post Rd. W), and Hanover (1810 Washington St.) Jersey Mike’s restaurant locations.
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 28, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Throughout the country, on Day of Giving, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators will donate resources and every single dollar that comes in to nearly 150 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 the select Jersey Mike’s Subs locations throughout the month of March, and especially on Day of Giving when 100 percent of sales – every penny – will help support neighborhood needs,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.
Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised more than $5.5 million for local charities nationwide. An astounding $4.6 million of that amount was raised on Day of Giving alone. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $27 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
