Bert’s Big Adventure is joining forces with 43 Jersey Mike’s restaurants throughout the Atlanta, Macon and Columbus areas for the 9th Annual March “Month of Giving” campaign. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to Bert’s Big Adventure at the participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants. The campaign will culminate in 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 Bert’s Big Adventure.
On Day of Giving, local 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.
Locally, 100 percent of the day’s sales will go directly to the nonprofit organization that provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families.
In 2018, the Atlanta, Macon and Columbus area Jersey Mike’s locations raised more than $165,000 for the campaign. This donation not only aided in funding the organization's annual trip but also provide support for their year-round initiatives such as Reunion Adventures and Fairy Godparent volunteer program.
“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, who started the company when he was only 17 years-old. “From the early days, it’s just kind of 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.”
