Nationwide in March, Jersey Mike’s launched a “Month of Giving”. Jersey Mike’s stores and customers this year raised a record breaking $21 million to help 200+ local charities. Locally this translates into the “Day of Giving” for a chosen nonprofit organization each year.
The Lincoln chapter of TeamMates (lincolnteammates.org) was the recipient of this year’s Day of Giving donation, 100% of the proceeds from both Jersey Mike’s locations on March 29.
“We couldn’t be more thankful for this great gift,” says Jim Bennett, Lincoln TeamMates coordinator. “I spent several hours at both locations and was blown away by the great community support for TeamMates mentoring.”
Traffic at both Jersey Mike’s locations was steady to jam packed between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. Employees worked to fill a record number of orders arriving on-line and at the counter.
“The Jersey Mike’s crew were rock stocks!” said Christine Davis, TeamMates staff member. “We just tried to keep those waiting focused on gratitude.”
Lincoln TeamMates makes a meaningful impact in the local community and beyond by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring. Mentors are volunteers from the community who have committed to this program and their students. For more information, please visit lincolnteammates.org, Facebook/Instagram or call (402) 436-1990.
