CASA for Kids of East Texas, is joining forces with the two Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants in Tyler for the 7th Annual “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to CASA for Kids of East Texas at any area Jersey Mike’s restaurant and receive a coupon for free chips and a drink.
On March 29 the restaurant will donate 100 percent of the day's sales at the Tyler Jersey Mike’s restaurants to CASA for Kids of East Texas.
CASA is a nonprofit organization that advocates for abused and neglected children in Smith, Van Zandt and Wood Counties by providing trained volunteer advocates who represent children's best interests in court with a goal of achieving a permanent living arrangement for each child.
“CASA is very appreciative of the generosity and support of Jersey Mike’s Subs,” said Mary Jo Burgess, CASA executive director. “The number of abused and neglected children in our community who need us continues to rise at an alarming rate. With incredible partners like Jersey Mike’s, we will continue to advocate for the best interest of the children we serve. On behalf of our staff, volunteers, and stakeholders, thanks goes to Jersey Mike’s for their compassion, commitment and for providing a fun and easy way for our community to make a difference in the life of a child.”
Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised more than $4 million for 180 different charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $18 million for worthy local causes and distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. Started in 1956, the sub chain now has more than 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide.
“I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your family to visit Jersey Mike’s Subs throughout the month of March, and especially on Day of Giving when 100 percent of sales – every penny – goes to help a great local cause,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.
