Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving Raises Nearly $11,000 for CEDARS
Jim Blue, President of CEDARS (www.cedarskids.org), graciously received a check for $10,797.83 from Jersey Mike’s Subs on April 7th. The money was raised at the three Jersey Mike’s Lincoln locations during the sandwich company’s 6th Annual Month of Giving in March. Jersey Mike’s month-long fundraiser for CEDARS culminated with a “Day of Giving” on March 30, when 100 percent of sales went to the charity.
CEDARS has provided care for children and youth in crisis for nearly 70 years. This year CEDARS will deliver services to nearly 2,500 children and their families.
Presenting the check from Jersey Mike’s was Gary George, Operations Manager for the Lincoln Jersey Mike’s locations and Jeff Marcotte, President of Nebraska JMS Development, LLC.
Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $14 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
