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.

Goodwill employee doesn’t let pain slow him down

Goodwill employee doesn’t let pain slow him down.

Tony Gilmore has a highly technical job of trouble-shooting, correcting and getting computers up and running at Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina.

“I like working on different brands of computers,” Gilmore said.

He also gets to do another job he loves — interacting with customers who want to buy or need information about refurbished computers.

Gilmore has a large customer following at various Goodwill stores.

“He has a lot of customers who come here specifically because of the stuff that he builds,” Andrew True, Goodwill’s transportation and E-Cycle manager, said of the Goodwill on Peters Creek Parkway.

Thomas Royal, a multimedia public relations specialist for Goodwill, said that it’s wonderful to watch Gilmore interact with customers.

“People will come in and they’ll just wait until Tony is available to talk to them because he’s patient and he explains things,” Royal said.

Gilmore wasn’t always focused on computers and electronics.
