After receiving generous donations from customers all month long throughout Jersey Mike's company-wide "Month of Giving" fundraising campaign, local locations of the national sub chain have decided to take things a step further.
14 Austin-area Jersey Mike's locations will donate 100 percent of proceeds made on National Day of Giving, March 28, to support Helping Hand Home for Children, the company said.
The promotion will be available all day during business hours on Wednesday March 28.
In 2017, the Austin-area Jersey Mike's locations raised more than $38,000 for the campaign, and the company collected more the $5.5 million nationwide. $4.6 million of the $5.5 million raised nationwide in 2017 was gathered on Day of Giving alone, according to Jersey Mike's.
Since 2010, Jersey Mike's has raised more than $28 million for local charities and has distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
