Make-A-Wish Alabama, Jersey Mike’s Subs to partner for ninth annual ‘Month of Giving’ campaign


Special to the Opelika Observer

Make-A-Wish Alabama is joining forces with Opelika’s Jersey Mike’s Subs location for the ninth annual March “Month of Giving” campaign. 

During March, customers can make a donation to Make-A-Wish Alabama at participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants.  

The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving on March 27, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales to Make-A-Wish Alabama.   

On the Day of Giving, Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the country will donate their resources and every single dollar that comes in to more than 180 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more. 

“Last year’s nationwide Month of Giving initiative raised more than $6 million for charities making a big difference in their local communities, and this year, we hope to raise even more,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “From the early days, it’s just what we’ve always done — give to give, as they say. This March, I invite you to visit Jersey Mike’s to help support an important cause in your neighborhood.”
