CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Feb. 21, 2019 – The Isabella Santos Foundation (ISF) is joining forces with 39 Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the greater Charlotte area for the 9th Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to the Isabella Santos Foundation at any participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants. Proceeds from all cookie sales at the participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants during the month of March will also go back to the Isabella Santos Foundation.
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27, when these 39 local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to the Isabella Santos Foundation.
On Day of Giving, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the country will donate resources and every single dollar that comes into more than 170 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
In 2018, the greater Charlotte area Jersey Mike’s locations raised more than $135,000 for the campaign.
“Last year’s nationwide Month of Giving initiative raised more than $6 million for charities making a big difference in their local communities, and this year, we hope to raise even more,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old. “From the early days, it’s just kind of what we’ve always done — give to give, as they say. This March, I invite you to visit Jersey Mike’s to help support an important cause in your neighborhood.”
