Jersey Mike’s Subs raised more than $7.3 million for local charities nationwide during this year's ninth annual Month of Giving.

In the Greenville area alone, $85,352 was raised for James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital. In addition, the Swansboro Jersey Mike's raised $20,619 for Backpack Friends serving Onslow and Carteret Counties. 

The total is $1 million more than was raised during last year’s campaign.

The campaign culminated on March 27, the official Day of Giving, when 1,500 Jersey Mike’s restaurants donated 100 percent of sales to more than 200 different charities across the nation.

“I would like to thank our extraordinary customers, franchise owners, team members and charity partners who helped us raise the most ever during Jersey Mike’s ninth annual Month of Giving in March,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “Our mission statement has always been focused on making a difference in people’s lives, and the record-setting amount raised this March will go a long way toward supporting the good work of our local partner charities.”

Cancro, who bought his first sub shop at age 17, credits two local businessmen in Point Pleasant Beach where he grew up — Jack Baker of Baker’s Lobster Shanty and Bob Hoffman of Hoffman’s Ice Cream — with showing him the importance of giving unconditionally to the community. From the beginning this philosophy has been central to Jersey Mike’s mission, he said.

During the month of March, customers were invited to come in to their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and make a donation to a designated charity partner. Then on Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving,” 100 percent of the day’s sales were donated to each local charity partner. The charity recipients included schools, hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $41 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
