Jersey Mike’s 13th Annual Month of Giving Campaign
Special Olympics Hawaii and Jersey Mike’s are joining forces for the company’s 13th Annual “Month of Giving” campaign. From now through the month of March, customers can donate at any Jersey Mike’s restaurant in Hawaii as well as on Jersey Mike’s mobile app. Ordering in the month of March benefits Special Olympics Hawaii and its work to provide year-round sports training, competition and health, wellness, and leadership programs for more than 3,400 athletes statewide with intellectual disabilities, free of charge.
The Month of Giving campaign will culminate with Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 29, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants (except for Schofield Barracks) will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to Special Olympics Hawaii. And as an added incentive to give, those who donate $1 will receive $1 off their next order and those who donate $5 or more will receive a Buy One Get One Coupon for their next visit.
“Jersey Mike’s has shown a tremendous commitment to supporting our athletes year-round both on and off the playing field,” said Tracey Bender, Special Olympics Hawaii’s director of development. “Along with raising funds for our programs, they’ve also partnered with us to provide meals for our clinics and competitions, and we are extremely grateful for the employment opportunities they’ve provided our athletes.”
This March, Jersey Mike’s hopes to exceed last year’s record-breaking national fundraising total of $20 million and help local charities fulfill their mission and make a difference. Since the Month of Giving program began in 2011, Jersey Mike’s has raised more than $67 million for local charities.
“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.
