Eat a sub, be a Valerie Fund hero: Jersey Mike’s celebrates 14th annual ‘Month of Giving’

The Valerie Fund is joining forces with over 130 Jersey Mike’s Subs locations across the entire state of New Jersey for the 14th annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to support local charities.

During the month of March, Jersey Mike’s customers will have the option to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar or donate $1, $3, or $5 when placing their order.

The Month of Giving campaign will culminate with Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on March 27, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100% of the day’s sales — not just profit — to the Valerie Fund.

“We are deeply honored and immensely grateful to be chosen again as Jersey Mike’s charity partner for their Month of Giving campaign. The support from Jersey Mike’s has been tremendous. It is not just a partnership; it’s a heartfelt commitment of support for the Valerie Fund’s mission of providing critical psychosocial care to children with cancer and blood disorders, supporting the entire family at a hospital close to home,” Barry Kirschner, executive director of the Valerie Fund, said. “This support will go a long way to helping the Valerie Fund meet the needs of the over 6,000 children who come through our eight centers every year.”

On the Day of Giving, local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the country will donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in — whether in-store, online or through the app — to more than 200 different charities, including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

This March, Jersey Mike’s hopes to exceed last year’s record-breaking national fundraising total of $21 million and help local charities striving to fulfill their missions and make a difference.

“I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your family to visit Jersey Mike’s Subs throughout the month of March, and especially on Day of Giving, when 100% of sales — every penny — goes to help a great local cause,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old.

Since Month of Giving began in 2011, Jersey Mike’s has raised more than $88 million for local charities.
