Jersey Mike’s Raises Over $290,000 for Isabella Santos Foundation
Record-breaking come-back year for 11th annual “Month of Giving” in Greater Charlotte area benefits childhood cancer
Written by Rachel Wood, Director of Marketing
Wednesday, March 31st, 2021 was a day like no other! Lines longer than Jersey Mike’s Subs franchise owners in the greater Charlotte area have ever seen. Many locations shut down online ordering because they were too overwhelmed. Other locations sold out of bread. Yup… a sub place sold out of bread!
Jersey Mike’s Subs 11th annual Day of Giving raised $251,971 in the greater Charlotte area, smashing 2019! And raised a total of $293,084.09 throughout the entire Month of Giving. After last year’s Day of Giving was canceled due to the pandemic, supporters came out in full force to help shatter records. Jersey Mike’s raised a record-breaking $15 Million for more than 200 local charities during the month. Talk about a come-back year!
We were so moved to see so many people we know on March 31st. And so many we didn’t know. But everyone was there with one common goal, to eat Jersey Mike’s and make a difference for childhood cancer.
“Hickory Jersey Mike’s was lined out the door yesterday. My dad was diagnosed with colon cancer yesterday and when we left the hospital first stop was here. Gives me hope that cancer will not win! Proud to support such a worthy cause!” -Paula
“Got mine in honor of my 12 year old angel son and all the other kids out there still fighting. Thank you for all you do to fight for research of childhood cancer!” -Jason
There is no other brand we know of that drives such a philosophy into their culture and gives back 100% for a full day to local charities companywide! The impact Jersey Mike’s has on local charities and their communities nationwide is transformational. Specifically for the greater Charlotte area locations… their partnership is truly saving lives! It’s making a difference right here in our backyard by helping build the ISF Rare & Solid Tumor Program at Levine Children’s. After this record-shattering Month of Giving, our four-year partnership with Jersey Mike’s has raised over $600,000 for the Isabella Santos Foundation and pediatric cancer!
Thank you Jersey Mike’s Subs for instilling such a give-back mentality from the top down.
Thank you greater Charlotte area franchise owners for believing in our mission. We would not be where we are today without your support.
Thank you to every single one of you for eating Jersey Mike’s in March, for standing in lines, and waiting patiently on March 31st. Because of you, over $290,000 was raised for kids fighting rare cancers.
