Each year, Jersey Mike’s Subs asks customers to eat a sub and help a local charity. This year, the national sub shop chain is joining forces with nearly 150 local charities for the company’s Month of Giving fundraising campaign, which will culminate in a “Day of Giving” event on Wednesday, March 29, 2017. High Risk Hope is the sole beneficiary in West Central Florida.
“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 percent 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.
