Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving”

jerseymikesSub lovers from coast to coast can make a substantial difference today by joining Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving.”

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its authentic fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, is donating 100 percent of sales to more than 120 local charities including schools, hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more. Always held on the last Wednesday of March, the “Day of Giving,” this year on March 25, is the culmination of Jersey Mike’s 5th Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign.

The company is committed to raising as much money as possible for these important causes. For added momentum, since March 15, Jersey Mike’s has been running a special Month of Giving commercial, with a tag in each market noting the local charity and inviting the public in to any of its participating locations nationwide to celebrate the “Day of Giving.”

“Giving…making a difference in someone’s life” has been the mission of Jersey Mike’s from the beginning. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations have raised more than $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

Throughout the month, customers have been invited to visit their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and donate to that location’s designated charity partner. Last year’s “Month of Giving” initiative raised $2.1 million for 100 different charities nationwide and the company hopes to raise even more this year.

Jersey Mike’s believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same, a philosophy that has fueled the sub sandwich chain’s popularity. Following its successful recipe of deliberate, well-considered expansion, Jersey Mike’s has more than doubled in size in just three years.

Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 750 locations open and under development nationwide, has a long history of community involvement and support. Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s serves authentic East Coast-style subs on fresh baked bread – the same recipe it started with over 50 years ago. The company’s mission is to bring its customers the highest quality, freshest made sub in the industry and give back to the communities in which it operates.

Man and dog control Canada geese via motorcycle

Why do we love lists? Is it because they bring order to chaos and keep us from wondering aimlessly up and down the grocery store aisles asking ourselves, “Why am I here?” I confess. I am a diehard list maker. If I finish a task that wasn’t on my To Do list, I’ll add it and then carefully cross it off and put a check mark next to it. Recently Jerry and I had lunch at Little Richard’s Barbecue in Clemmons with my parents. While we were eating, I kept thinking about all the fantastic things I love about Little Richard’s. It’s time to put pencil to paper so to speak and share with you the 15 reasons you should eat at Little Richard’s Barbeque.

A memorial fund has been established for Alexander Perez, the 10-year-old boy who died Monday March 9, 2015 after he was struck by a SUV in southern Winston-Salem.
The Alexander T. Perez Memorial Fund is at Carolina Bank at 275 N. Stratford Road in Winston-Salem.

George Stabolitis, the owner of The Carriage House Restaurant, said he established the fund because many people want to help the Perez family. The proceeds will go toward helping the family pay funeral costs and other expenses, Stabolitis said.

A graveside service for Alexander was held Friday March 13, 2013 at Mount Gur Cemetery in Kernersville.

For more information, call Carolina Bank at (336) 747-1900.
