Jersey Mike’s donates to Isabella Santos Foundation
CHARLOTTE – Jersey Mike’s Subs raised more than $167,000 for the Isabella Santos Foundation through its ninth annual Month of Giving and Day of Giving campaigns.
During March, 39 area Jersey Mike’s restaurants collected more than $13,750 in customer donations and cookie sales. The campaign culminated with the Day of Giving on March 27, when eight owners and operators donated all of the day’s sales – over $153,500 – to the foundation.
Franchise owner Nick Smith III said giving back is part of the company’s culture, making it a natural fit for the greater Charlotte franchisees to partner with the Isabella Santos Foundation.
