MANASQUAN, N.J., Oct. 31, 2013 — This Veterans Day weekend (November 9 through 11), Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, is thanking customers who come in and make a donation to Wreath Across America (WAA) by presenting them with a free delicious cookie from David’s Cookies.
Since October 1, all Jersey Mike's stores throughout the nation having been collecting donations for the nonprofit organization, which lays hundreds of thousands of remembrance wreaths at the headstones of the nation's veterans during the holiday season. To date, the campaign has already raised nearly $100,000 through in-store donations and a matching Jersey Mike’s Social “Giving Menu” initiative. The final day of the campaign is November 11.
Jersey Mike’s social “Giving Menu,” is a takeoff on today’s popular dollar menus, and encourages fans and followers to share the WAA story via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Jersey Mike’s is donating $1 for each social action made, up to $25,000.
