On the March 26 Day of Giving, all Tri-Cities area Jersey Mike’s restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to Speedway Children’s Charities.

Everyone is invited to come in to a local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and enjoy a delicious sub meal.
“Speedway Children’s Charities is honored to be named Jersey Mike’s charity for the Month of Giving,” said Claudia Byrd, Executive Director, Speedway Children’s Charities. “It speaks volumes about their community involvement and their desire to help those in need. Speedway Children’s Charities aims to meet the needs of every children’s organization in the area who needs help. This is a wonderful way for the community to get involved in helping us meet our goal.”
Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised $1.7 million for 86 different charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $7.5 million for worthy local causes and distributed more than 600,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“I would like to extend a personal invitation to come in and enjoy a Jersey Mike’s sub during our Month of Giving,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old. “This year we hope to raise more than $2 million to support these local causes so we can bring hope to all those involved with the charities and make a difference in people’s lives.”
