Jersey Mike’s Subs continues its tradition of giving this Wednesday, March 31, when local stores will donate 100 percent of sales to UC Davis Children’s Hospital. It’s the Day of Giving, the culmination of a month-long fundraising event held annually in March.
This nationwide Month of Giving fundraiser encourages Jersey Mike’s customers to donate throughout the month and on the final day of the event, March 31, franchise owners donate proceeds to the local charity. For the third year, area stores partnered with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) - the fundraising arm of UC Davis Children’s Hospital. All funds raised support research, equipment, programs and patient care for sick and injured children in the children’s hospital’s 33-county service area.
“We are thrilled Jersey Mike’s chose to support us again in 2021,” said Michelle Tafoya, CMN at UC Davis program director. “The last year has been tough on a lot of businesses and nonprofits so having local franchise owners continue to show their commitment to kids’ health is especially impactful.”
Since the first fundraiser in 2011, Jersey Mike’s annual Month of Giving has raised more than $32 million total for charities across the United States. The restaurant chain hopes to raise a record-breaking $8 million in 2021.
