April 11 - Jersey Mike's Raises $24,174 for Ronald McDonald House

Category: Georgia Business News

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

April 11, 2018 - Jersey Mike’s Subs joined with its generous customers this March during the 8th Annual “Month of Giving” to raise a record amount of over $6 million to help charities nationwide. 

The campaign culminated on March 28, Day of Giving, when 1,360 Jersey Mike’s restaurants donated 100 percent of sales, not just profits, to more than 170 different charities across the nation.

Locally, $24,174 was raised for Ronald McDonald House Charities© of the Coastal Empire. RMHC© of the Coastal Empire is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that provides a restful, comfortable place for children and their families to find refuge and support as they receive medical treatment at our nearby hospitals, with a focus on helping children heal faster, cope better, and stay healthy. 

“I would like to thank our extraordinary customers, franchise owners, team members and charity partners who helped us raise the most ever during Jersey Mike’s 8th Annual Month of Giving in March,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.  “Our mission statement has always been focused on making a difference in people’s lives, and the over $6 million raised this March will go a long way toward supporting the good work of our local partner charities.”

Cancro, who bought his first sub shop at age 17, credits two local businessmen in Point Pleasant Beach where he grew up — Jack Baker of Baker’s Lobster Shanty and Bob Hoffman of Hoffman’s Ice Cream — with showing him the importance of giving unconditionally to the community. From the beginning this philosophy has been central to Jersey Mike’s mission.

During the month of March, customers were invited to come in to their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and make a donation to a local designated charity partner. Then on Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” 100 percent of the day’s sales were donated to each local charity partner. The charity recipients included schools, hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

“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 throughout the country have raised more than $28 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
