GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Jersey Mike’s is celebrating its Day of Giving all day Wednesday.
Local Jersey Mike’s restaurants, 14 in Greenville and the surrounding area, will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital.
It’s all a part of the eatery’s 7th annual “Month of Giving” ion March. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital at the 14 participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants.
Greenville shops are partnering with the Children’s Miracle Network to benefit children’s hospitals.
One of the sub shops had an appearance by Miss North Carolina McKenzie Faggart who was able to see how the money affects children.
“I saw first hand what the Children’s Miracle Network money does for the hospital, said Faggart. “Not only for the bed there at the NICU, not only for the ambulance that was just paid for, but also for the kids and what it does for them.”
In 2016, the Month of Giving campaign raised more than $4 million for local charities nationwide. And since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $20 million for worthy local charities. They’ve distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
