STEVEN’S HOPE FOR CHILDREN & JERSEY MIKE’S SUBS

TEAM UP FOR MONTH OF GIVING IN MARCH

“Day of Giving” March 27

UPLAND, CA, 3/1/13 –  Steven’s Hope for Children is joining forces with Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the Inland Empire area for the 3rd Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign to support the families of seriously ill or injured children during  a child’s extended treatment and care.  The campaign will culminate in the nationwide event, Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27.

During the month of March, customers can make a donation to Steven’s Hope at any area Jersey Mike’s restaurant.  Then on March 27, a special nationwide celebration, “Day of Giving,” will take place at all Jersey Mike’s locations to benefit 86 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

On that day, Inland Empire residents are invited to come in to a local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and enjoy a delicious sub meal.  All area Jersey Mike’s restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to Steven’s Hope for Children.

Local Jersey Mike’s restaurants participating include: Eastvale- 12569 Limonite Ave., Ste 320; Upland-1945 N. Campus Ave, Suite A; Murietta- 25359 Madison Avenue, Suite 109; Norco-1411 Hamner Ave., #104; Rancho Cucamonga-8880 Foothill Blvd; Redlands- 10040 Alabama Street, Suite D; Glendora, 865 W. Route 66, Suite A; La Verne- 2212 Foothill Blvd.

“Jersey Mike’s is helping to change and positively impact lives around the country,” said Tony Cappelli, co-founder and President of Steven’s Hope for Children. “To be part of the Month of Giving and the Day of Giving helps Steven’s Hope for Children feed, clothe and support families with seriously ill children. Together we are saving lives.”

Cappelli added, “There is an opportunity for everyone in the area to help us impact a child, a family.  It’s as simple as donating $1 or more during the month at one of the eight area stores and ordering a sandwich on March 27. We need everyone to talk about this, share it, tweet it, and put a hash tag on it.  The collective effort of the community for this month can last a lifetime.”

Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised nearly $858,000 for 74 different charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $5 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

“I would like to extend a personal invitation to come in and enjoy a Jersey Mike’s sub during our Month of Giving in support of one of your local charities,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old.  “The opportunities to give are all around us so we hope this March, you will join us to make a difference in someone’s life.”
