Boys & Girls Clubs Of Metro Phoenix And Jersey Mike's Subs Team Up To Help Local Kids
Fundraiser Takes Place Through Month of April
March 25, 2010 • Phoenix, AZ
Jersey Mike's Subs restaurants in Phoenix and surrounding communities are joining forces in a month-long campaign to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix (BGCMP). To support the organization, Jersey Mike's stores will donate $1 for every #13 sub sold throughout the month of April.
"It's a tough time for non-profits and we want to ensure Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix is able to continue teaching and empowering our future citizens," said Bill Mapes, Jersey Mike's franchisee and area director. "All of us in the Jersey Mike's Subs stores in Phoenix and the surrounding communities want to thank our customers in advance for helping support this great cause."
Participating stores, located in Phoenix, Chandler, Scottsdale, Ahwatukee and Tempe, will sell as many of the most popular Jersey Mike's sub as they can. The #13 is the Original Italian with an assortment of Italian meats and cheeses, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, done Mike's Way with red wine vinegar, olive oil and spices.
In addition, 10,000 free sub coupons will be distributed throughout the community and at BGCMP events during the month of April. For each card redeemed, Jersey Mike's will donate $1 to the cause.
"More than ever before, kids need a safe place to go where they can get a nutritious meal, help with their homework and support from caring adults. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix is excited to partner with Jersey Mike's to help provide youth with the hope and opportunities they need to succeed," said Amy Gibbons, President and Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix.
Reaching out to the community is a key component of Jersey Mike's mission. All franchise owners find ways to support their neighbors and employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents as well.
