Jersey Mike’s Franchise System has donated $25,000 to Interfaith Neighbors in Asbury Park as part of its national initiative to give back to the communities they serve. In keeping with that initiative, Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems, Inc, along with its 350 stores in 26 states, has given back over $250,000 in the last 18 months to support local hospitals, charity foundations, local chapters of national causes and important youth-related programs.
Founded in 1988, Interfaith Neighbors, Inc. is a non-profit organization that assists working poor families and elderly residents of Monmouth County meet their basic housing and nutrition needs. The organization also operates the Monmouth County chapter of the NJ Youth Corps, a year-round, voluntary program which engages young adults (ages 16-25) in full-time community service, training and educational activates. Ninety-seven cents of every dollar contributed to Interfaith Neighbors goes directly into these community-based programs.
