March 10, 2014 • Manasquan, NJ
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its authentic fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, joined with its generous customers this March during the 4th Annual “Month of Giving” to raise an unprecedented $2.1 million for more than 100 different charities nationwide. For the total amount raised in your local market as well as a complete listing of participating restaurants and charities in your area, go to www.jerseymikes.com/mog.
“Our extraordinary customers, franchise owners, team members and charity partners have outdone themselves this year during our 4th Annual Month of Giving,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “We exceeded our goal and are grateful to everyone who helped make a difference in people’s lives.”
During the month of March, customers were invited to come in to their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and make a donation to a local designated charity partner. The campaign culminated in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 26, a daylong nationwide event when 100 percent of the day’s sales were donated to each local charity partner. The charity recipients included hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
Last year’s “Month of Giving” raised $1.7 million for 86 local charities. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 750,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
Jersey Mike’s believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same, a philosophy that has fueled the sub sandwich chain’s popularity. Following its successful recipe of deliberate, well-considered expansion, Jersey Mike’s has nearly doubled in size in just three years.
Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 1,300 locations open and under development nationwide, has a long history of community involvement and support. Jersey Mike’s serves authentic fresh sliced subs on freshly baked bread – the same recipe it started with in 1956. The company’s mission is to bring its customers the highest quality, freshest made sub in the industry and give back to the communities in which it operates. A restaurant locator and franchise information for Jersey Mike’s can be found at www.jerseymikes.com or on Facebook (www.facebook.com/jerseymikes) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/jerseymikes).

Children's Hunger Project
The Children's Hunger Project is delighted beyond words to be chosen again as a beneficiary during Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving. Bryan Price and his team have supported The Children’s Hunger Project in a remarkable manner. The Jersey Mike’s Subs locations in Brevard County also assist our charity throughout the year. The money raised is a blessing with all of it going to purchase food for local hungry and undernourished kids. No administrative costs are involved with any money raised during the Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving program. We are equally excited over the prospect of having our name displayed in each of the stores. This gives us the opportunity of creating awareness to many people that may not have heard about us through other channels. In our area, the problem of hunger and malnutrition is much higher than the national average. How touching it is to have a food vendor be the catalyst for making it possible for people who are not their customers…elementary school age kids…to receive food. Mere words are not sufficient for me to express how blessed we are to have the support of Jersey Mike’s Subs. What I am able to say, though, on behalf of kids that have no voice, "THANK YOU”!

Topeka Youth Project
Topeka Youth Project’s Jobs for Young Adults program is celebrating 30 years of providing more than 6,000 young adults job readiness and life skills training with a 94% employment rate. These young people are tax paying citizens in our community aging from 16 to 48 years of age. Some of the graduates from years past now hire current graduates, provide mentorship to young adults who need support from an adult who cares about their future. Topeka Youth Project’s Youth Court provides youth with the opportunity for leadership, to learn more about their civic duty, and how to take responsibility for their actions by attending court. This program is youth led and youth driven by 13-18 year old students. The judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, jurors, bailiff, court clerk and defendants are all teenagers. They hear cases of first time traffic offenders, with misdemeanor charges.

The proceeds from this event will help us provide for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the hundreds of homeless and hurting men, women and children we serve every day.

Windwood Family Services
The leadership at Jersey’s Mike’s understands it takes a huge community effort to extinguish domestic violence, abuse, and neglect from our community’s landscape. They have answered the call to action with their Month of Giving campaign and have given us an opportunity to join forces with them to make a positive impact in the lives of at-risk children. We salute them for developing this business model for others to follow and appreciate their continued support of our mission. Without this support, many children would not experience the feeling of a good night's sleep. Windwood provides help, hope, and healing through residential, out-patient, and in-home interventions that breaks the cycle of abuse and rebuild strong and resilient families.
