If ever there was a day to buy submarines and more Jersey Mike’s so it’s tomorrow. Not just because they make great sandwiches (which they do), but because Wednesday is their annual “Donation Day” which involves all of their approximately 2,200 locations across the country and is the culmination of 12and Annual fundraising campaign “The month of giving”.
In previous years, the Manasquan-based company has had its individual franchises partnered with local charities including hospitals, food banks, youth organizations and many more. However, for the first time, all owners and operators in the country are teaming up to support the same cause… to help local athletes attend the 2022 Special Olympics USA in Orlando, Florida. Jersey Mike’s is the presenting sponsor and chances are you’ve seen a TV commercial featuring Founder/CEO Peter Cancro whose involvement with Special Olympics dates back to 1975 when he owned the original location. at Point Pleasant. Every four years, more than 5,500 athletes and coaches from all 50 states come together to compete in the Special Olympics USA Games in 19 sports, including swimming, gymnastics, basketball, tennis, track and field and more. others.
Wednesday is the highlight of this month-long fundraiser, as all stores nationwide will donate 100% of the day’s total sales (no profit) to help athletes achieve their dreams and goals by competing against others. in Orlando from June 5 to 12. Last year, a record $15 million was raised and Jersey Mike hopes to top that number.
So on Wednesday, make your plans to visit one of three dozen locations in Ocean and Monmouth County. Everything you spend on hot and cold subs, chips, cookies, water and soda will be donated and will make a difference. I have a lot of personal favorites…Club Supreme, Tuna, BLT, Famous Philly Cheese Steak…Roast Beef. It won’t be easy, but I’m going to narrow it down to two…one for lunch and one for dinner.
Jersey Mike’s motto is Give…Make a difference in someone’s life. Wednesday is your chance to share that..
