Monroe Township, NJ – Make-A-Wish New Jersey is joining forces with over 90 Jersey Mike’s Subs throughout the state for the 11th Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to fund local charities. This is the 5th year of the sub shop’s partnership with Make-A-Wish New Jersey. Since their partnership began in 2017, Jersey Mike’s Subs has raised over $1.1 Million for Make-A-Wish New Jersey, helping to grant over 150 wishes to children with critical illnesses in local communities throughout the state.
Throughout the month of March, customers are encouraged to make donations to Make-A-Wish New Jersey through the Jersey Mike’s mobile app or onsite at each participating location.
The campaign will culminate with Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 31, when over 90 local Jersey Mike’s will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to their partner charities. Whether customers order a sub, a catered meal or even a bag of chips, Jersey Mike’s will donate every single dollar from sales via the Jersey Mike’s app, online or instore to Make-A-Wish New Jersey.
On the Day of Giving, Jersey Mike’s is generously offering free delivery through the Jersey Mike’s app.
“As we celebrate five years of granting wishes in partnership with Jersey Mike’s Subs, we are humbled to think about the lives that have been changed thanks to their financial support,” shared Tom Weatherall, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish New Jersey. “This year has been unprecedented because of the pandemic and has been a struggle for us as it has been for everyone. But Jersey Mike’s Subs has not stepped aside. They have instead found new and innovative ways to continue their support and create multiple opportunities for the community to support Make-A-Wish New Jersey and the March Month of Giving, with health and safety at the top of mind. We are honored by their continued commitment and proud to once again be a part of their March Month of Giving. So, all throughout March – and especially on March 31st, the Day of Giving – please support your local Jersey Mike’s. Buy a sub and help grant a wish!”
Despite the global pandemic, life-changing wishes continue to be granted daily in New Jersey, across the country and around the world, from backyard pools and playsets to gaming computers, from puppies to basement movie rooms, from MacBook pros to wave runners, campers, and local destinations like the Jersey Shore or a camping trip in Pennsylvania. The impact of a wish and the mission of Make-A-Wish has not wavered, because hope cannot – and will not – be cancelled.
“This March, we celebrate our Month of Giving with a renewed sense of determination to do all we can to raise as much as we can for important local causes,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “I invite you to come in this month and make a difference in someone’s life.”
Since Month of Giving began in 2011, Jersey Mike’s has raised more than $32 million for local charities. This year, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the country are supporting more than 200 different charities.
Make-A-Wish New Jersey has granted over 11,000 wishes since its inception in 1983. The generous support of corporations like Jersey Mike’s Subs is critical to the organization’s continued success.
