CHANGE FOR PEDIATRIC CANCER IS JUST A FEW BITES AWAY
Isabella Santos Foundation Kicks off “Month of Giving” with partner Jersey Mike’s in March
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Feb. 27, 2020) — The Isabella Santos Foundation (ISF) is joining forces again this year with its charitable partner, Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants. Jersey Mike’s Subs has 43 participating locations throughout the greater Charlotte area. For the Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to raise funds for pediatric cancer research, customers can make a donation to the Isabella Santos Foundation at any participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants. Proceeds from 100% of the cookie sales at the participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants during the month of March will also go back to the Isabella Santos Foundation.
The pinnacle of the campaign will be on Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 25, when all 43 of the participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales directly to the Isabella Santos Foundation.
On Day of Giving, nationwide, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators will donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in towards more than 200 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
In 2019, $167,319.87 was raised during Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving for the Isabella Santos Foundation and pediatric cancer research! Since 2018 more than $300,000 has been raised!
“As a brand, Jersey Mike’s is very passionate about giving back. We don’t give to get, we give to give,” says Jersey Mike’s Charlotte Franchise Owner, Nick Smith. He continues, “With that being part of our culture and being a dad myself, it was a natural fit for the greater Charlotte franchisees to partner with the Isabella Santos Foundation. Erin Santos and her amazing team’s commitment to finding a cure for pediatric cancer is contagious. We are honored to be part of that team and look forward to many years of partnering with them during the Month of Giving.”

Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised more than $7.3 million for 200 local charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $41 million for local charities and distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to you and the entire Jersey Mike’s crew for the generous Month of Giving to the Isabella Santos Foundation,” says Melissa Scanlon, Charlotte Cancer Mom. “My daughter was diagnosed with cancer on her 3rd birthday and received outstanding care at Levine Children’s so I know firsthand what you are helping to support there. ISF has done so much to expand the treatment options for children and support these families in our community. Your donation and partnership are huge in making that happen.”
