Jersey Mikes Helps Jersey Kids.....Again

Posted by The Valerie Fund on 3/1/24 11:35 AM

Jersey Mike’s Subs is once again partnering with The Valerie Fund for the “Month of Giving” campaign. During the month of March, customers will have the option to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar or donate $1, $3, or $5 when placing their order.

The Month of Giving campaign will culminate with Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27, when local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to The Valerie Fund.

 Canva Design DAF8mbLyWwoAfter we smashed it out of the ballpark last year, with an amazing $1.27 million raised, this year over 130 New Jersey-based Jersey Mike’s Subs are partnering with The Valerie Fund. This March, Jersey Mike’s hopes to exceed last year’s record-breaking national fundraising total of $21 million and help local charities striving to fulfill their missions and make a difference.

"We are deeply honored and immensely grateful to be chosen again as Jersey Mike's charity partner for their Month of Giving campaign. The support from Jersey Mike's has been tremendous. It is not just a partnership; it's a heartfelt commitment of support for The Valerie Fund’s mission of providing critical psychosocial care to children with cancer and blood disorders, supporting the entire family at a hospital close to home,” said Barry Kirschner, Executive Director of The Valerie Fund.

Order Jersey Mike’s Catering for your office, the teachers at your kid's school, or any group you’d like to treat.
