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 local Jersey Mike’s owners and operators donated 100 percent of the day’s sales – totaling over $153,500 – to the Isabella Santos Foundation.
“We were blown away by all the support from the community,” Executive Director Erin Santos said. “It really is incredible to see how this campaign can bring a community together for something bigger than us.”
The Month of Giving has raised more than $6 million last year and $34 million since 2010 for charities nationwide.
“As a brand, Jersey Mike’s is very passionate about giving back. We don’t give to get, we give to give. With that being part of our culture and being a dad myself, it was a natural fit for the greater Charlotte franchisees to partner with the Isabella Santos Foundation,” said Nick Smith III, a local franchise owner of Jersey Mike’s Subs. “Erin and her amazing team’s commitment to finding a cure for pediatric cancer is so contagious.”
