TAMPA, Fla.- High Risk Hope (HRH) is joining forces with 37 Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the West Central Florida area for the 9th annual “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. During the month of March, customers can donate to HRH at any area Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurant.
The campaign will culminate in Jersey Mike’s Subs “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, when 37 Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to HRH.
On the 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 170 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
In 2018, the West Central Florida area Jersey Mike’s Subs locations raised over $104,000 for HRH during the campaign.
“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 Subs 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, they say. This March, I invite you to visit Jersey Mike’s to help support an important cause in your neighborhood.”
HRH Ambassadors from across the region, HRH volunteers and families of premature babies who have been supported by HRH, will visit Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants on the Day of Giving to share their stories with customers.
