Domestic Violence Intervention Services (DVIS) is partnering with the three Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants in the Tulsa area — 7526 S. Olympia Ave., 10912 S. Memorial Drive and 854 Hillside Drive in Broken Arrow — for the 11th annual March “Month of Giving” campaign to fund local charities.
During the month of March, customers can make a donation to DVIS at the three participating Jersey Mike’s restaurants. Donations may also be made using the Jersey Mike’s app.
The campaign will culminate with Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 31, when the three local Jersey Mike’s restaurants will give 100% of the day’s sales — not just profit — to DVIS. The restaurants will also offer free delivery March 31 for orders placed through the Jersey Mike’s app.
This March, Jersey Mike’s hopes to raise a record-breaking $8 million for local charities striving to fulfill their missions and make a difference. Since Month of Giving began in 2011, Jersey Mike’s has raised more than $32 million for local charities.
“This March, we celebrate our Month of Giving with a renewed sense of determination to do all we can to raise as much as we can for important local causes,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “I invite you to come in this month and make a difference in someone’s life.”
